Trail Overview

A seasonal forest route that traces along the Blue Ridge Parkway at a lower elevation. The surface is natural dirt with rocks, mud, and stream crossings. A tunnel around the mid-point passes under the BRP. Several mud holes are of varying difficulty depending on recent rain. The trail can be accessed from 2 points on the BRP, with the one near midpoint variably opened or closed. The spur trail near the BRP end listed as open is always locked gated and not used. No cell service in the area.

My first time on the Enchanted Creek Trail. It was muddy and a great time for my dog and I.
