Old Forge Loop

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."
