Trail Overview

Relatively easy trail with no serious obstacles, but the route is very overgrown and only one vehicle wide. If you drive a full-size vehicle, prepare for scratches on the vehicle. If you look at a map of Bush Head Gap Road, the map will show that the trail is 1-2 miles longer than shown. However, the forest service put a large berm 2/3 of the way down the trail, making it impassible. Bush Head Gap Road has a camping spot at the end of the trail and a small spot at Hudson Gap. These spots look to have little use other than the occasional backpacker from Benton Mackaye Trail. This trail makes a great detour for a short exploration off the Georgia Traverse.
