Not difficult terrain, but lots of sharp rocks imbedded in the trail and large, exposed tree roots. Hiking boots are warranted. I hiked until the decline became steeper than I wanted to climb back up. This is about 4 miles from the trail head on Spruce Knob. The trees thin out and have a very high canopy at this area, and in late summer/early autumn, there's a forest shade meadow of white flowers that the trail cuts right through. The flowers were just past peak when I saw it.

We went from spruce knob down to Seneca Creek to camp and then back up the next day. The campsite was right on the creek and it was beautiful. There were 6-8 campsites in that one area so plenty of room for multiple groups. The trek back up the hill is very steep so those first few miles are rough, we needed many breaks

We only hiked the first 1.3 miles, but it was beautiful with spruce trees and moss covered rocks. Parts of the trail were pretty rocky. Would love to hike the rest of this trail.

This is a wonderful trail that follows a ridge from Spruce Knob and then descends to Seneca Creek near Judy Springs. It's a beautiful trail, but ti's most valuable if you also add on to this some time along Seneca Creek. After a rain, the trail can become extremely muddy, requiring you sometimes to jump from rock to rock to avoid walking through mud. Some parts of the trail basically become a stream channel as water descends towards the river below.

nice trail. I hiked out in a 45mph wind advisory at 5°f . needless to say it was cold. but the majority of the trail is in relatively dense forest so wind wasn't so bad. alot of rocks and it seems that the trail would be a very wet one if it hadn't been frozen solid. I hiked to the end , stayed a day and hiked back out making for a easy weekend. plenty of parking at the spruce knob lot, bathrooms, trash cans and we'll labeled . plenty of blaze marks and well taken care of. i gave a 4 star cuz of the amount of rocks on the trail you'll spend most of your time with your face to the dirt rather than being able to look around and take it all in.

This trail was amazing although very rocky in places. There are some great camp sites and it is very well traveled.
