Most of this trail was turned into a road during 2005. From Ledford Gap to Boyd Branch Road, it is a gravel road and will be permanently maintained that way. Not a trail. From Boyd Branch Road to Ingles Field Gap, it is currently an unimproved road turning back into a trail - it's doubletrack in some places with some singletrack sections forming. But this section has been renamed as part of Little Hickory Top trail now.

The remaining section of trail called Sidehill connects from Little Hickory Top down to Laurel Branch Road. It's short, but still a good one, and it's bumpy with lots of rocks and roots in spots. Some large water turn-out mounds have been placed on this part of the trail and they're fun; a few banked curves are thrown in for good measure. Some parts are quite steep. Makes a great downhill.
