The Tea Creek Trail travels from Tea Creek Campground to the top of Gauley Mountain. From the campground, follow
the Williams River Trail to Tea Creek Mountain Trail, turn left and begin climbing on the Tea Creek Trail. After the trail
descends to Tea Creek, the trail follows an historic railroad grade. At 2.8 miles, find the Forks of Tea Creek, a scenic
swimming hole with a rustic camping shelter. Near this point the trail crosses the Right Fork of Tea Creek, and begins a
one and one-half mile section with a dozen stream crossings. There are no bridges. A second camping shelter is located near the northern end of the trail.
