This is a great run offering a grinding uphill start followed by several miles of twisting and winding single track through the Little Frog Wilderness Area. The trail has 2 creek crossings and some mud along a creek trail, but it is very quiet and secluded, offering a perfect trail running experience.

Beautiful hike with lots of flowers along the trail. It can get overgrown as very quiet trail, so if your taking dogs beware of ticks, our dogs I am sure left some behind but brought a lot of passengers home!

Parked at the power plant. It starts right across the road from there. There aren't really any signs that say the River Loop Trail. You start out on the Benton trail, and it is all uphill for a couple miles. Then the Benton trail goes left and for this trail you go right. After that there are not many more markers for the rest of the trail. It was mid January, and the trail was simply following the flat leaves on the ground. It was pretty easy to follow, until the first creek crossing. Then there were down trees blocking the path making it very hard to find. Thank goodness for the map that had already been recorded on All trails, by Rick. Really kept me on track. When you get to the road, its a good couple miles back to the powerplant, via the road and Rhododendron Trail. I'm 55 and in fairly decent shape, and this thing wore me out. But man, I enjoyed it.

Followed the tip and parked at the campground. Started at the power plant on BMT. Shortly after making the turn onto the rock creek trail, the trail became pretty overgrown and hard to follow. it got better ~4 Miles in but not as well traveled as the BMT. We pushed through with our two kids 7 & 13 and made the full loop (10.5 Miles). Nice walk in the woods!

Great spot to hike, kayak and ride. Excellent gift shop inside the center, lots of good info regarding the Ocoee Whitewater center. Good products sold as well from literature to Kavu, northface, Patagonia gear.

The River View Trail offers a nice escape from the main trails that are on the Tanasi Trail System (a group of 20+ miles of trails). While the trees were not quite as enormous, the entire area had a feel similar to the Ewok Forest and since I was hiking solo, I was hoping that if I had to run into some kind of woodland critter, itd be something more like this guy than one of the brown bears that are occasionally spotted in the area.
