Description

The trail leaves the 3152 trailhead, snaking across the contours to Hurricane Creek. The creek crossing can be unsafe during high water periods.

The first 10 miles head through rough slopes and hollows associated with the Eleven Point National Scenic River. Expect a number of nice views of the Eleven Point Valley along this stretch.

From the Greer Recreation area, at mile 10, the trail runs along the Eleven Point River toward McCormack Lake. Here, you'll find a scenic vantage point at the mouth of Greer Spring for a photo followed by an excellent bluff view of the river near mile 12. A spur trail leads to McCormack Lake at mile 13.

Continuing west, the trail curves through more of the same rough Eleven Point terrain, offering two more close encounters with the river. Around mile 20, the trail heads next to Bockman Spring, which is part of the Spring Creek drainage. All spring water should be treated before use. The westernmost 10 miles of the trail are in the Spring Creek drainage and offer occasional views of the creek and lower fields.
