Trail Overview

Pope Loop is an easy meandering drive through southern pine forests with harvested areas creating ideal hunting locations. This loop is topped off with a designated dispersed hunt camp called Gladesville. Pope Loop is a well-maintained gravel road that has only a few potholes that hold water. They are not very deep and can be traversed in a 2wd vehicle carefully. Smith Mill Road is in better shape than New Hope Church Road to the East. New Hope Church Road is littered with potholes in a few low-lying areas, but other than those spots, it's a smooth gravel road back to Highway 83 South. Due to previous drought conditions, be aware of falling trees during high winds and storms.
