This trail is a loop which is equidistant in either direction to the junction with the Old Hatchery Trail at the other end of the trail. The Springs Trail is a continuation of the rockiness you can also encounter on the Old Hatchery Trail.
The trail is somewhat rough as it is littered with small to medium sized rocks and boulders. It's nothing too tough. On the north end of the trail, you'll encounter the Little Bear Connector which can be used to connect to the Blue Ridge Trail.
