Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"A number of trails connect with Coldspring Branch, which enables you to make a loop of this wonderfully wooded hike. Tall trees, wildlife, and several creek crossings enhance the experience as you explore the middle portion of the Mountain Bridge Wilderness. You’ll begin by making a long, steady descent, dropping down nearly 1,000 feet of elevation. But remember, what goes down, must come up. So be prepared for a steep climb that will challenge your mettle as you return on the Tom Miller Trail. If the loop is too long, simply alter the distance by hiking out and back."
