My family hiked this trail on our way back to White Oak campground in a circuit that included the Tobacco House Ridge trail and Blue Suck Falls Trail. In all we hiked 5 miles total. The trails in Douthat State Park are very well maintained. My only complaint is that some of the signs were a bit confusing. Be sure to take the park trails map with you. See the picture of the confusing sign we encountered on our hike.

There's a Beard's Gap that goes east from the office that is moderate too easy. It has amazing views of old rock formations and streams. Well worth it!!
