Description

The northern six miles of this section head along a prominent ridge line that separates Big Creek and Blair Creek. The trail then drops south of the ridge and enters the Blair Creek watershed.

Here, the trail follows Blair Creek to the south as the creek cuts a long, deepening valley toward Current River. Along this stretch of trail, explore old home sites, natural springs, and fields returning to their natural state with myriad wildflowers through the Blair Creek Valley.

The trail gradually continues toward the bluffs perched above the Current River where you'll find the most breathtaking views of the river along the entire trail.
