Went on a wet weekend and tried to pick a hike where mud wouldn’t be too much of an issue. This hike was a great choice. Recommend doing loop to the right for a steeper ascent and more gradual descent. Had to take shoes off multiple times to cross Red Creek. The waterfall was beautiful. Hike was definitely more than 7 miles (guessing maybe 8 miles). On the 2nd half of the loop, we were slowed down by lots of muddy parts but we had a lot of fun with it! No views or overlooks but the forest was magical and we really enjoyed the hike!

We took this with friends and loved every minute of it. It was harder than we expected especially with a 6 year old, and longer than it stated, but it was a great hike. Beautiful day and the waterfall was fantastic! We are excited to come and camp out for one night saw several great sites along the way.

Water level was high enough that crossing red creek requires taking shoes off or getting wet socks. We did just the red creek portion and will come back later in summer when water levels are lower. Cool trail otherwise.

Awesome wilderness adventure

South Prong shares its trail head with another trail called Boars Nest. Both trails are marked as starting here but in different locations. It is easy to stumble onto Boars Nest and not even know it. There are two shallow stream crossings one road crossing and some road walking. We did t stumble on any overlooks but we didn't opt to explore any spurs after our first mishap. Moderate climb. Lots of fun and would do it again.
