This trail is located in the Davidson River area. For a list of all the trails in that area, see the Davidson River trails list page.


Travels from the Cove Creek trail at Cove Creek Group Campground up Caney Bottom Creek to reconnect with Cove Creek trail near the headwaters. Makes an excellent loop when combined with the Cove Creek trail. Passes several small to medium-sized waterfalls. Climbs high up the hill above the creek in places. Some areas have tricky roots, rocks, wet areas, or stream sections. Some trail is built on old roadbeds while some is strictly new tread. Beautiful, rich woods with open, fern-filled sections.
