“Auxier Branch is an outing guaranteed to get your heartrate up.”— Chris Chaney
You can have a nice variation to the Auxier - Courthouse Loop by taking one of those two trails to Auxier Branch Trail and continuing on it over to Tunnel Ridge Road and returning to the trailhead that way. Distance is similar.
This trail is very enjoyable and is interesting. The creek itself (Auxier Branch) is very pretty and typically flowing all year. The creek is rocky and a good place to take a break and listen to the water. The run up from the bottom of the canyon, especially running towards Double Arch is a little steep.
