The trail begins near Isaqueena Falls in Stumphouse Tunnel Park. After crossing Crane Creek, the trails winds gently through the forest for the first 2-3 miles, but becomes more difficult as you near mile 4. From there the trail begins a gradual climb to an 80-foot gorge, then levels out and follows a dirt road to its end on Frog Pond Lane.

Blue Ridge Railroad Historical Trail Report:

We sent 5.9 miles loop on this trail and came out of the hike with over 50 ticks on us. counting 2 dogs and 2 people! beautiful, peaceful, but dangerous due to the ticks! we are still picking ticks off the dogs! very small tick (new born), so the are some that are tiny. I would stay away from this trail!

Brenda again! I would stay away from this trail until the colder months when the ticks are dormant.
