This is not an easy hike! You start out crossing a wide creek more than ankle deep. Once you find the trail marker on the left, I would recommend going right and following the yellow blazes so it isn't as steep. When you get to the next metal marker with the name on it, veer to the left to stay on Jennings trail. There are a ton of deep Creek crossings, deep brush, narrow pathways, 2 big trees have fallen and block the path. Use this app to help guide you. I had a signal with Verizon which helped get me out. I took my husky but I wouldn't recommend it for any pets, it's not well maintained and extremely rough and dense in a lot of places. I won't hike it again and I'm an avid hiker!

Situated in the Old Forge recreation area, this trail is easily accessible and great for a day of lounging. There are plenty places to dip your feet and wade in the first half mile. After that, the trails become pretty dense. About halfway through once you're on top of the mountain the trail becomes extremely narrow. Wear pants, there are briars. It's pretty strenuous once you start to move up and away from the water so be prepared. The breathtaking mountain views are totally worth it. It is not moderately traveled.

Nice hike. Several stream crossings along the way. A couple of downed trees that you need work around.
