    Great hike! Be prepared to climb A LOT of stairs. Very beautiful and worth the climb! You can see for miles on clear days!

    This trail takes you through some lush forest. There is some uphill climbing along the way. It takes you all the way down to Hickory Nut Falls. It is a tall and beautiful waterfall and the temperature is very cool. You can feel the mist from the Falls.
