A long trail snaking through the South Mills River Drainage.

Brian Smith

Overview

Features: River/Creek

Description

Though this trail is on a relatively easy grade, there are nine bridgeless river crossings, thus the difficulty rating. From the end of FS 476, it is four miles to Wolf Ford, where there is a nice campsite. Additionally there is a suspension bridge, but from here to Cantrell Creek there are no bridges.

You'll notice signs of an old railroad along much of the trail; look for old trestles at water crossings. Due to the trails location at the bottom of a steep valley, it remains cold in the summer, but is very refreshing. Between Cantrell Creek and the Turkeypen Gap Trailhead there are suspension bridges to cross the river. There are numerous intersections with other trails for loop opportunities. Follow the white blazes to stay on this trail.
