During hunting season be wary of hunters as the frequent the area. It is also located in a dry county alcohol use is prohibited.
Enjoy the scenery as you go through young pine stands to rugged hardwood bottoms with massive old growth trees that are sure to amaze. Some of the loblolly pines in the forests traversed by the trail are impressively large. Here, the understory is sparse, and you can see a long way around you. The route is marked by red signs also known as the "Racecourse Loop."
