Description

This trail is best suited for horses, since it has so many river and creek crossings with no bridges. An old road for most of its length, it follows the South Fork of the Mills River downstream before climbing up and over Pea Gap then down to Pea Branch, Case Branch, and Bradley Creek.

Scenery varies as the trail winds through wildlife fields, natural grassy openings, and hardwood and hemlock forests; past a Hendersonville Watershed reservoir; and through a deep valley before ending at Yellow Gap Road (FS 1206). Several trails intersect Bradley Creek, so check the MTB Project MTB Project mobile app for loop opportunities. Keep in mind that water levels in the mountains can rise quickly after a rainstorm, so take due precautions. Because of its low elevation, this trail is popular at all times of the year.
