There is a small pull-off at the Twin Creeks trail head. It may be a better idea to leave your car Mynatt Park just before the entrance to Cherokee Orchard Road. As this is a point-to-point hike, make sure you have made arrangements to get back to your car from Old Sugarlands Trail.

Pretty burnt up and the regrowth is beautiful to see. I ended up following a black bear for a bit before making a lot of noise to purposely get it off the trail. The creek and birds singing just made me lose all negative thoughts for the entire day. Highly recommended if you're trying to get back in shape or just want to escape for a short while. The trail is thin and not handicap friendly.

Great trail but significant fire damage. A lot of charred downed trees. Still recommend the hike.

An easy trail to hike. The highlight of the trail was when we saw a back bear on the trail heading in our direction. There was a lot of evidence of bears (lots of droppings) on the trail. We also saw turkeys, squirrels and birds.

This is not a difficult trail but 6.4 miles is still a good workout. We saw a bear that ran away from us, wild turkeys, gray squirrels, and other small beautiful birds. Foliage is lovely on this trail. I highly recommend it!

This is a nice trail if you want to get away, clear your mind and have a nice quiet hike. The trail is well kept, easy to follow, and visually pleasing if you like raw nature.

The trail is good shape but doesn't appear to get much use. We hiked it today and never saw another hiker except for on the nature trail. Easy hike, great for beginners and children.

Neat nature trail. Nice brochure to explain as you go.
