Cannon Creek Trail is mixed singletrack and doubletrack with a good bit of elevation change. You will climb some going in either direction. The trail is generally hard pack dirt and smooth for the most part. The climbing is the main reason for the 'moderate' rating and there is nothing of note for hikers or bikers to be concerned about.

You will hear a small waterfall downhill from the trail about 1/4 mile from Rich Mountain Road. It is barely visible thru the trees in winter but not once the leaves fill in. There does not appear to be any closer access to the waterfall.
