Trail Overview

Most of the trails in the ONF are easy gravel roads, this one included. There wasn't much elevation gain or decent on this trail. Even when it rains the roads don't really get muddy, however, you may find mud puddles or potholes along this road. There were two water crossings so I don't suggest a car to traverse this trail during the fall and winter months as the depth can vary significantly during these months. There were two campsites along this route which are dispersed with no bathroom and no cell service. There are lots of pine trees along these roads. Use caution as I saw several of these over the roads. Use extra caution around water during the summer months as there are cotton-mouth snakes along with rattlesnakes and scorpions. Deer are also present in the forest. During the springtime hunters with dogs with tracking collars can be seen running free through the forest.
