The water was up so there were a few places that were fun to navigate over the stream. Swampy in a few areas. History

Description

The trail is useful for connecting the AT Appalachian Trail with other trails in Caledonia State Park and the Flat Rock area of Michaux State Forest and making possible a number of loop options. From the Locust Gap Trail, it proceeds Northwest into the gorge of Hosack Run through a dense rhododendron thicket, before bearing to the southwest and ascending to the AT Appalachian Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Rhododendron and mountain laurel.
