Rhododendron Bluff Circuit

Rhododendron Bluff Circuit Professional Review and Guide

"This loop visits one of the deepest valleys in the Triangle area. You might even call this part of New Hope Creek a mini gorge as it cuts a rocky, rapid-filled swath beneath Piney Mountain. Situated in the Korstian Division of Duke Forest, upland fire roads lead down to New Hope Creek, where you then join the New Hope Creek South Trail.

Enjoy hiking along the rugged and stony stream with bordering rocky flats that resemble waterways of the Carolina mountains. Come upon the base of Rhododendron Bluff, a steep, evergreen-cloaked hill and sheer cliff towering over New Hope Creek. Leave the creek, using forest roads and trails to complete the loop."
