on Wild Oak Loop

22 hours ago

Spent 3 days and 2 nights mid-November. Water sources weren’t abundant, but Camp Todd and North River Campground worked out well. The 7-mile hike to Little Bald is a good day 1 hike. The climb at Dowell’s is a doozy (go right not up). North River Gorge has 8 river crossings. Get ready to get your feet wet. Didn’t see any other hikers, but did pass five mountain bikers and a truckload of hunters.
