This was an amazing hike! We hiked in only 4 miles looking for the old growth forest, which we didn't find. After about 2.5 miles the trail managers had not been around in a while and there were downed trees to cross and such, which just made it more fun! It was lovely with the mountain laurel blooming and the changes in flora as we went along. The elevation changes made it a bit more challenging, but that was good too! Had a great time!

Loved all the historical features all along this trail. Get the park's app for the trail. Great descriptions of points along your hike.
