This is actually an easy and quick way to get over 1 thousand feet of vertical. The trailhead begins at the fish hatchery near Brevard, NC. Many campsites are virtually within a few feet of the trail and some are very close to the trailhead along the Davison River.
The hike can be clockwise or counter clockwise and it doesn’t really change the difficulty either way. This hike is especially colorful in autumn.
