Old Forge Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This circuit is long on wildfl owers in spring. Start at scenic Old Forge Campground, and then ascend Round Knob Branch, a small stream you cross 23 times. Join view-laden Cowbell Hollow Trail, where panoramas open from a fi re-scalded slope. Drop into Jennings Creek, a small stream with surprisingly large pools. Pass a backcountry swimming hole and a couple of forgotten homesites before returning to Old Forge."
