Description

The trail begins at Table Rock State Park. The trail leaves the Campground trail, and after one mile, until it crosses Mill Creek and intersects with an old logging road after another mile. Follow the logging road until around five miles in and admire the few good views. Cross over a bridge and enter the boulder field. Around mile seven, there is an interesting waterfall off the trail.

Just before the nine mile marker is an opening in the trees to a nice view of Pinnacle Mountain. Here, there is also a side trail to a designated campsite is located on Emory Creek (upstream from a waterfall). After this, the trail makes a sharp turn to the southwest, taking you on your final climb up to the ridge of Horse Gap. The trail finishes at a small, unmarked roadside pull-off from US 178.
