Some Mud - Great hike out of the big east fork trailhead parking lot. Can be done as a loop with the old butt knob trail. History

Its a bit confusing at the start from 276, since there are no trail markers, but its not too bad once you get to the Old Butt Knob junction. As you get closer to Art Loeb (a little past the 3 mile point from 276) the trail becomes overgrown, thick, and steep. You can see the trail but it is narrow and very overgrown. Nov 9, 2017
