“A scenic run along the Green River and then a climb up to views of the gorge and other peaks.”— Eli Smith
Features Birding · Fall Colors · River/Creek · Swimming · Views · Waterfall · Wildflowers · Wildlife
Run through some nice hemlock trees, and at about 4.7 miles into the run, at the junction, turn right onto Rock Hop Trail; follow this to the junction with Bishop Branch Trail and turn south. The loop continues to climb but never up terribly steep grades. Turn left at the junction with Bear Branch Trail and then shortly after a right onto Long Ridge.
The trail reaches it highest point at the junction with Long Ridge and Stair Step Falls Trail. As you descend Stair Step Falls, there are nice views of the gorge and Tryon Peak. At the junction with Turkey Gut, there is a nice waterfall just down stream of the wooden bridge that can make a nice resting place.
Turn right onto Turkey Gut, then quickly right again onto the Bluff Trail. This is a steep descent back to the trailhead.
