Trail Overview

This route is one side of the old Shoe Creek Trail that is now gated in the middle at private property. The surface is gravel from the state road to the parking area for the Upper Crabtree Falls and is fairly easily passable. There are a couple of small creek crossings with loose rock before the parking area. The remainder of the route is unmaintained natural surface and rocky. There are numerous large dispersed camping areas along the route. The AT crosses the route and offers hiking opportunities. The trailhead and parking area located around midway is the top-down hike of Crab Tree Falls. No cell service in the area.


Half rough gravel and half unmaintained rocky
