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. The loop part is one way traffic.
