Description

This blue-blazed side trail connects with the Appalachian Trail at Cow Camp Gap and Hog Camp Gap. Paired with the adjacent Appalachian Trail, it makes an intermediate loop from the parking area at Hog Camp Gap.

Both this trail and the Appalachian Trail have cleared wildlife areas that provide views of the surrounding peaks. This trail also passes through the old, rock "hog walls" from long abandoned farms.
