This trail is meant to be a long interconnected trail throughout the Carolina's. At this point it has multiple unconnected pieces and this describes the piece connected to the Whitewater Center. It is a fairly easy trail with little elevation change and mostly wide spacing. There are a few tight tree areas, small rock gardens and large roots along the trail. The trail does a loop with an optional out and back section. The out and back section is flowy, smooth and pretty fast but is two way traffic.
