Once we took the left fork and split from trail 202 it was easy to see why this trail is called Magnolia Trail. Beauitful Wild Magnolia trees line the path amidst towering hardwoods and new growth pine. As advertised the trail was mostly flat until about the last 1/4 mile. This is the hike down the bluff to the river bottom. The hike down the bluff gave us a spectacular view of the fall colors in the valley below. Mountain Laurels lined the narrow path. There was a well used campsite right on the river bank.
Beware of the hike out, the climb up the bluff is a bit challenging if you are in top shape.
This was a beautiful trail to hike in the fall.
