This is an excellent, easy trail, and a great loop for beginners wanting to sample some singletrack riding, with low elevation changes. It travels through a forest of mostly white pines with an understory of mountain laurel and a vast cover of ground pine. Lots of roots are the main tread obstacle with soft pine needles along most its length. There is a wooden bridge crossing at the lower end of the small Foster Creek itself. This is in a rather detached section of Pisgah National Forest, so there are no intersections with any other trails (except the old logging road). Unfortunately, this trail is slated to be turned back into a road as a part of the Brushy Ridge logging project.
