    This off shoot was a really interesting down-and-back. There was a combination of rock-filled roads, some washed out areas, a few manageable muddy spots, tight turns, and a decent view at a few points. I enjoyed this mostly for the moderate technical rating. Though I was able to complete this in my fairly stock LR4 with road tires, I was constantly engaged by the changing terrain. Nice loop/campsite at the end. Took about 30 or so minutes to drive each way.

    I wouldn't call this difficult. Family-friendly and easy for all ages, the trails are well-marked and clear. For this Cali- and Hawaii-versed hiker, this is a 1 or 2/10 in difficulty.

    While driving to the starting point, you will have to cross a small stream that gutted the road. Not recommended for low-level cars or low-ground clearance vehicles. There is limited parking, but no fees. The decent was easy. The main issue is one of the bridges was knocked out. You can take off your shoes and cross the large creek, or balance on a log to cross it. Keep trekking for another 1/2 mile and you’ll come to a split trail. Take the left trail to view a small waterfall. Go straight for another 1/3 mile and view a large, beautiful waterfall. There is a worn path to access the water near the base of the platform. We used it to filter and refill our canteens for the hike back up the mountain. Our 4yo daughter made the trip (last 1/4 of the hike was moans and groans). 4-stars for trying to figure out how to cross the large creek with a 4yo without getting anything wet.

    Great hike! The elevation isn't too bad but still gives you a good workout. The view at Owen's Overlook is fantastic and Springer is as satisfying as ever! Heavy crowds on the AT between Springer and the Springer Parking area but otherwise not many people.

    This trail is the kind of regular trail, but it seems popular because we saw lots of people were hiking.

    Perfect day for hike!!! A little chilly in the shade though. Jarrard Gap to Blood, then returned on Slaughter Creek trail.

    Coming in from the South, the ride on the Forest Service Roads is very long. The trail is gorgeous, easy terrain, and very well maintained. We’re in drought, so the waterfall wasn’t flowing hard, but the Hickory Flatts Cemetery was more than enough to make up for it!

    Hike this trail about 20 times per year. Each season brings a different challenge and new features. In early and mid-summer the rhododendron blooms are abundant along the entire trail. Fall colors are amazing and the lack of foliage in the winter opens up new views, but can get quite windy especially along ridges. The views at the top are always amazing...we love to hike up to watch the sunset over the North Georgia mountains and blue ridge. While this trail is not overly challenging, it is fairly steep with a few different rock scrambles that are tough, but fun. Get there before 7am on weekends if you want to find parking!

    Beautiful fields and views. Nicely groomed trail. Wide enough for mountain biking. Large incline to summit. Bring water. Hiked with Kristy Anderson from their Lake Blue Ridge House. Quito picked us up on last mile.

    Hiked it counter clockwise with scout troop (Philmont prep hike). Spent the night at the Calf Road intersection. Great view of the valley in the upper campsite there. Day 2 we climbed Blood Mtn and overnighted at Bird Gap. Lots of elevation change on this trail. Trail was in great shape.

    I tracked this hike from the top down only. From the bottom, the first hill up to the ridge is all switchbacks so it moderates the impact of the elevation gain. Once up on the ridge it is beautiful. Feb 2018. There is a quarter mike section of a lot of rhody blowdowns and one large red oak to navigate around. Leftover from the December ice storm. I really enjoyed the views along the ridge. Views from the top of course are amazing.

    Trail was pretty muddy from all the rain that has been hitting the northern Georgia mountains for the last month. This is rated as difficult, I feel it is easy to moderate.

    Neels Gap to Woody Gap was a difficult day hike, but very enjoyable.
