Great trails, from nice wide paved trails to unpaved wooded trails which pass by creek and swampy area. Very nice and will go back soon. Had no problems with mosquitoes, and encountered many walkers, bikers, joggers. Our total trip was around 7 miles. Very nice. Super easy trails.

Okay, now that I've looked at the reviews more and realized that All Trails is advertising a LOOP hike for this I am a bit annoyed. I have actually done this loop but not because I wanted to, it was part of a social trail survey I was doing for the Forest Service. The right part of the loop is unsanctioned and not an official trail so it is not going to be maintained by anyone. When it begins to loop back around, that is a very steep pitch getting you back up to the ridge and on to Odum Scout trail. I would advise anyone to stay off offiical Odum Scout trail and under normal circumstances, stay off the right portion of this loop unless you have strong navigation skills, a GPS to get you back over to Odum Scout trail. Not sure how All Trails gets this kind of data but it is negligent to advertise a trail that is not sanctioned and not maintained. Goes to show, don't trust the internet all the time for outdoor information. Get a decent map, talk to locals or local user groups before blindly going on a hike that is vaguely advertised on a site like this. I give this listing a negative rating and All Trails needs to pull this, IMHO.

I hiked the entire length of the Odum Scout trail on Thursday, September 21, 2017. As Chip J. said, it is in terrible condition. We began at High Falls and ended at Turnipseed, picking up Chinnabee Silent trail at the end of Odum Scout trail. Since I've been on this trail a dozen times or more, in passable conditions, I was able to make it through the six feet tall vegetation that has grown up and reclaimed portions of the trail on the ridge tops along Cedar Mountain and Caney Head. I then decided to adopt the trail to clear it until it's passable. I am a volunteer for Wild South and our first work on Odum Scout trail began today. We brushed about 3/4 mile beginning at the High Falls trailhead. We did not get to the heavily overgrown parts but we will on the next one for sure. I will be conducting a work day on Odum Scout trail on the last or second to last Saturday of every month until it is finished. If you are interested in joining us on a work day, looks us up at www.wildsouth.org My name is Kim Waites. Thanks!

The nicest trail I've ever been on . I walked on the south side of pavement in the grass and sand. Was about 50% shaded walking there. Plenty of rest stop benches along the way . I did the 1.5 straight out and back . Completely flat . Swinging bench at the 1.5 stop along with a restroom house . Great.

Beautiful scenery a small creek when it rains. Took this hike with a dog, and a three and four year old no problem. Easy hike.

The hard part is coming back up but it's worth it for the waterfall area. Beautiful hike!
