Great trail. With many ride options.

We loved the trail. Shorter trail easy to walk with lots of water features ,Bridges , and overlooks. Great spot for fishing

Enjoyed the moderate hike up to the summit. Good views, but great conversation with hikers beginning their trek to Maine. Very inspiring...although afterwards we ended up at the Blue Ridge Brewary nearby :)

Very fun trail. My whole family went and even my mom who can't feel her feet was able to do it! We loved the bridge and the overlooks

Nice, easy trail. Well maintained.

Hiked here a few weeks ago, another or many many hikes on Springer. Highly recommend this section for almost any hiker as its not too strenuous.

Nice hike. Three Forks is not really marked. This hike you start up the AT to Springer Mtn. And after about 2.2 miles you switch and comeback on the Benton MacKay trail. You can continue on at the intersection of the AT/BM trails and go to Springer. It is about 1.9 miles from there so this adds 3.8 to the hike. Make sure drive in on DoubleGap. I went out the other way and my Honda Civic was not happy but we survived.

I took the bear creek spur to the loop, which tacks on a few miles. Great hike, a lot of ups and downs. Crossed some creeks 6 times or so. Plenty of scenery, some fell trees across the trail. Some great campsites, and in the Cohutta wilderness you can camp anywhere as long as regulations are followed. Loved every minute of this hike.
