After the Hike: Local Favorites

Panda Gourmet The lamb with cumin is dry-fried and served under a forest of cilantro, chilis, fat slices of garlic and bell pepper.
Mother Rucker Subs Great place, small owned, and awesome tunes!!
Hip Hop Fish & Chicken Yes, yes, yes! The absolute best fish and chicken that I have ever head since the early days of Popyeye's! Even better than Kochix...sorry but it is! Only missing the sauces.

Bad / Closed
Update
Fallen Trees - Big tree down about midway along the trail. Folks have beat a desire path around it through the woods, so it's navigable, but be wary of thorns and poison ivy.
