Tread Condition: Moderately Rough
Blaze Color: Blue
Trail Number: 147

This trail is located in the Mills River area. For a list of all the trails in that area, see the Mills River trails list page.


This is a long, backcountry trail. It's purpose-built trail that doesn't follow any logging roads - a rarity in Pisgah. It's excellent - fast, technical, and fun narrow singletrack clinging to the mountainside in most places.

Intersects Mullinax, Laurel Creek, Cantrell Creek, and South Mills River trails, making for some great loop options.
