Hyatt Ridge Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This loop hike takes you away from Straight Fork Road into the seldom-visited high country on Hyatt Ridge. Take the side trail to McGhee Spring Backcountry Campsite for lunch (this adds 1.8 miles to the hike), then return via Beech Gap Trail to Straight Fork. A short walk along the lightly used Straight Fork Road will complete your loop."

"Located in the remote Straight Fork section of the park, this “hidden gem” packs a big punch, especially for wildflower lovers. The best part is that you might have the entire hike to yourself.

Relatively few people venture into this part of the park, and
most of those who do aren’t here for the trails. The scenic Straight Fork runs alongside the access road, providing great opportunities for fishing, sightseeing, and playing."
