Description

The trail starts by descending through the trees and under the power lines from the Upper Long Branch Loop and Little Savannah Connector intersection. A slight rise and another descent bring the straight forward path to a steady climb that switchbacks through the trees to end at the other end of the Upper Long Branch Loop and the intersection with the Cullowhee Connector.
