Description

This is a well marked trail—so much so it'd be tough to miss a turn. There are some rocks on the trail, but many more roots to remind you to pick your feet up on uneven ground. Enjoy the very nice views of multiple creeks and small waterfalls along the way. Also, this loop has an abundance of wildlife if you're lucky enough to catch it. Many birds, small animals, and deer can be seen.

This is a beautiful trail that rarely sees visitors, making it quite the hidden gem.
