After a few creek crossings, Ledford is the right fork at the 1.2 mile mark of Wolf Branch
that connects to Ledford Branch Road
. Ledford is not well marked and has many forks and connects with many user-created side trails and can be very confusing and easy to get lost. This trail is not recommended due to the lack of Forest Service closure signage on the side trails.
Ledford offers a less technical climb option than Wolf Creek on the way up to Ingles Field Gap
