“A short trail to access the interior of South Fork Citico Creek Trail #105 from the Cherohala Skyway.”— Chihuahua Herder
The trail continues to follow this stream in the lower section. Around halfway up, it leaves Eagle Branch behind and follows its smaller namesake instead. Logging remnants can be found littered throughout the area.
The upper section of the trail is clearly more traversed as it is easily accessed from Grassy Gap on the Cherohala Skyway and has seen more maintenance. Though still not clearly marked, it is a little easier to follow despite the increased incline. It is also, due to ease of access, somewhat vandalised and trashed. The uprooted trail marker sign here reads "19" instead of "91".
McNabb Creek Trail #92 also has a trailhead at Grassy Gap on the opposite side of the skyway.
