Enjoyable trail with great views and sounds of Dick's Creek and the Broad River. Trail is very well marked and fairly level throughout. This is a great trail for beginners, but worth the trip for seasoned hikers as well. A couple of downed trees needed to be hurdled and yellow jackets near the south end of the trail required us to do a little bushwacking to avoid being stung. Some great campsites can be found about a mile in from the north trail head if you want to do an overnite. The trail starts and ends on FS87 so you can create a loop by walking the road. If walking the road from south to north be warned it is mostly uphill and could be tiring for the novice hiker.
