Trail shared by Shaun Anon

Another way to access the Slickrock Wilderness, this trail follows a mountain lead down to its terminus at Windy Gap.

Need to Know

Thanks to the crew at Southeastern Conservation Corps for the freshly manicured trail in a normally overgrown trail system!

Description

This trail starts at Big Fat Gap where Slickrock Road now ends. Following the old roadbed for 0.7 miles it is an easy run through second growth forest, before turning more narrow and steeply downhill to end at its junction with Nichols Cove Trail #44, an interior trail that both begins and ends on Slickrock Creek Trail #42.

Flora & Fauna

Hemlock, Laurel, Rhododendron
