“This loop combines several of Korstian's foot trails.”— Russell Hobart
After 1.6 miles, you'll see a large hill with some rocky faces to your left. Cross the creek where you can (it's hard with higher water) and go right on the trail New Hope Creek North trail.
At about 1.7 miles you'll make a small creek crossing. If you are finding it hard to cross, continue upstream further and there's usually a good spot to cross.
Continue along the creek until your at about 2.5 miles and you'll see Mrs. Brown's Connector to the left. Make a quick ascent and soon you turn left on Mrs. Brown's Trail.
At around 3 miles you reconnect with New Hope Creek North
At about 3.5 miles look right for a trail that heads uphill and back. This leads to the summit of Piney Mountain. Hit the summit and stay left heading back down hill eventually reconnecting with the New Hope Creek North Trail.
Follow along the trail passing the Concrete Bridge Road bridge where you'll take a right. Head uphill on Concrete Bridge Road until you see Big Bend Trail to your left. Big Bend Trail eventually turns from a fire road to a footpath as it descends, meeting up with New Hope Creek North. Go left here and finally reconnect Concrete Bridge Road where you turn right and climb uphill to where you began.
