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!
