trail_hike_comments: Starting at the Davidson River Campground, the trail ascends Shut-in Ridge (not to be confused with the Shut-in Ridge near the French Broad River further north, where the long Shut-in Trail begins). It travels through Cat Gap, around the south side of Cedar Rock Mountain, and down into Gloucester Gap, marking the end of section 1., trail_bike_comments: None
