The route described in this trail description is no longer open for hikers. The shortest hike to the Hensley Settlement is now via the 5-mile Shillalah Creek Trail, which is a gated dirt road that the National Park Service uses for vehicle access to the settlement. Thus, a hike to the Hensley Settlement including exploration of the entire settlement would be in the 12-mile range for the round-trip hike.
