New Florence Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This hike follows roads for its entire length, but don’t let that fool you. It is challenging. Only the middle portion of this hike, covering less than 2.0 miles, is even remotely flat. The rest of the time you’re climbing—to the tune of roughly 1,000 feet in elevation. You’ll have the chance to see some interesting wildlife along the way, though, along with a pretty stream winding through rhododendron and an old iron furnace.
This area is very popular with hunters, primarily from October through late January and again from late April to late May. If you want to hike here at those times of year, it’s best to do so on Sunday, when most hunting is prohibited."
