Trail Notes:
The trail can be difficult with quite a few steep hills and creeks to negotiate.  The north side is marked with blue diamonds, the south side with white.  The trail gets confusing in the area of Bull Camp Hollow.  Some of the trail follows forest roads.  In the summertime watch out for ticks, venomous snakes, and yellow jackets.  Do not try to cross Spring Creek during high water.
