Lovely hike. Trails were partially marked.

Beautiful views from the Fire Tower. Nice road with a steep ascent.

Great trail for beginners. The Carolina Trail by itself is super easy. Small hill on Running Cedar Rd but still easy. Definitely make your way to Bent Creek Trail. It’s also easy but has the best scenery by the creek and provides benches if you want to rest and take it all in.

Great for a short evening hike, I recommend going close to sunset on a clear day!

A nice hike up a rough gravel road. You can climb up the tower a bit. The cell phone tower detracts a bit from the experience.
