Description

From where this trail leaves the Bradley Creek Trail, it follows an easy grade to the old Mullinax home place where there is a grassy opening and the remains of the house foundation. From here it becomes a side slope trail, continuing through upper hardwood forests.

The trail winds in and out of several gaps, such as Mullinax Gap, Laurel Gap, Horse Cove Gap Trail (#325) and Squirrel Gap. The trail finally descends to Wolf Ford where it intersects with the South Mills River Trail (#133).

Some parts of this trail are open to horses, so watch for trail signs that state which uses are allowed. There are several trails which intersect this one, and many opportunities for longer rides.
