Sleepy Gap Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The first part of this 8.5-mile loop coincides with the Shut-in Trail, the path George Vanderbilt used to travel to his Buck Springs Lodge. The hike follows the gently winding trail through multiple mountain laurel tunnels to Bent Creek Gap. At Bent Creek Gap the hike continues on Bent Creek Gap Road to South Boundary Road. The dirt roads offer easy walking and a great place for hiking partners to proceed side-by-side as opposed to single file. The path then detours off the dirt roads at Sleepy Gap Trail and ascends through a forest of oak and sassafras back to the parking lot."
