This "relatively" level trail passes through a variety of shady trees, crosses a small stream on a log bridge and descends to cross two more streams before crossing Crale Creek on a large log bridge. The trail then climbs to cross Forest Road 5835 (Crale Creek Road). It continues on an almost level gradient until passing between an older plantation to the west and a more recent plantation on the east. It climbs to pass between a parcel of private land and an older plantation and then descends to cross Harper Creek. It continues on to cross North Creek. Both Harper and North Creek are crossed on log bridges. After crossing North Creek, the trail climbs to join the Eula ridge Trail.
Clay soils become slick when the late fall rains start and the condition lasts well into spring. Consider using another trail during this time when all types of users can easily damage the trail tread.
