Great trail! Elevation gain all at once so it goes from easy to difficult not much moderate. Bees nest on trail today with lots of bees per my tracker it’s 500 feet elevation and 2.5 miles.

CampingMuddyRocky

Rocky trail. Hot and humid (in July). Really fun hike. A thunderstorm rolled in midway through our hike, making visibility very low. We didn’t intend to hike all the way to Caesar’s Head trail, but we did because of the rain and not being able to find our campsite (#12). The rain was welcome after all the heat. The scenery was beautiful and you could constantly see water (cascades, creek, water fall). I recommend trekking poles.

Nice hike. A few small but very pretty waterfalls at the beginning, then three scenic overlooks. Very beautiful. This was the upper limit of length and ruggedness for my wife, but was a relatively moderate hike for me. I found it quite pleasant and came off the mountain feeling great.

The first thing that stands out to me was how well marked this trail was. It was a great steady climb, once I was headed in the right direction. I started out going the wrong way from the parking lot, since I’d read incorrectly another review about “take the trail, not the road”. Ok, let’s clarify this- at the start of the trail the gravel road is the trail until you cross 178, got it? Good. So, my first section of the hike was a bit long at 5.75- it took my dog and I 1:49 to get to the top. We were surprisingly alone on the trail. There were a few others at the top, but they had driven. Took us 1:15 to get down and that distance was 4.28- so that is an accurate distance from the platform at the top to the parking lot. Lots of pretty wildflowers, and yes, poison ivy- sporadic along the trail, prevalent in the parking lot. I bet in the winter you’d have some great views along the trail before the summit. I think we will do this one again.

Trail was very nice! Well marked with a sloping up incline. Not many views, just a good walk. Only downside was lots of stinging nettles alongside the trail. I would definitely wear long, thick pants.

The falls is beautiful and the trail is an old gravel road right up till the falls so it's an easy trail. Starting out the trail can be a little confusing but just follow the dirt path by the trail map sign and take a right onto the gravel road and then follow it al the way down. There are several campsites down by the Falls in case you want to make camp and stay for a while.

This is a fantastic trail for several reasons, easy to find and right off the road. Great parking, well-maintained, lake views, and campsites with water and fire rings

Peaceful swamp with cypress trees reflected in glassy still water. I would recommend avoiding the sumter months because of the bugs.

Not the most scenic trail, but good to get outside. Took a macro lens with me which got me looking for thing I might not usually. Lots of neat swamp characteristics.

Nice Saturday stroll through some interesting, varied ecosystems! Bug spray is a plus with recent flooding.

Such a beautiful trail! I started from Chimneytop Gap, which cut out about 1.5 miles off each way. Started a bit after 8, summited at 9:30, hung out for a bit up top, and then back to the car just after 11. I suspect the extra three miles would’ve added another two hours. Trail is well-maintained and easy to follow. Pretty steady uphill climb with some lengthy flat sections. Not much in the way of views until the end, but beautiful greenery throughout. Views from the top are awesome, and the observation tower is really well done.

HikingGreat!

I hiked the first 23 miles and I fully enjoyed the hike. Lots of waterfalls, water pools to take a dip and plenty of vegetation, some sections resembled a rain forest. Terrain is very good and I wouldn't even rate it 'hard'. Plenty of places to camp. Can't wait to do a through hike of the trail.

Planned to do this in two days but ended up pushing through and finishing the whole thing in a day. Fork Mt Trail wasn't as bad as some made it seem in prior reviews. The first half was mostly clear. The next half had maybe a dozen blow downs that were inconvenient but not terrible. Bad Creek/Chattooga trail had a few blow downs but overall was clear and wall marked. Foothills Trail was beautiful as always! Saw a bear a few miles in and ended up hiking the last couple miles in the dark.

Super shaded, bugs were not too bad. Watch for turtles and alligators at Weston lake overlook. The boards can be pretty slick if it’s rained recently like it had for us

Lots of blowdowns and mud. Not an easy trail with 40# on your back. But I’m backcountry camping at the spot I’m in, so we’ll see how it goes.
