Closed when wet and muddy. Check SORBA Mid TN for trail status.
You start by making a slow descent to the lowest point of the trail, which is marked by an interesting creek crossing. After which, you start the climb out, back to Phase 2. The trail is such that you won't really notice that you're climbing. It has a nice mixture of gradual climbs interrupted by short little descents.
There are a several log overs, but only two are difficult. The trail can remain wet for sometime, because of the trail location in the park.
