Hikes That Use This Trail: Cove Creek and Caney Bottom

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.


From Caney Bottom trail, climbs past Cove Creek Falls on an old road bed, through rich forests far above the stream, to flat areas near the headwaters and then up to Forest Service Road 225B. Unfortunately there is no good connector from the trail to Cove Creek Falls. This is a disgrace! You'll have to take an eroded, rocky, unsigned side path to get there but it is well worth it. Has some log bridges; beautiful forest and stream scenes. Makes a nice loop with the Caney Bottom trail to the east.

    Skye Barkschat said: No idea if uses are strictly monitored, but in a Forest Service area, it's not a bad idea to follow the signs, because they put them up specifically to control the natural environment, to keep it as natural as is possible & thus as healthy as possible, thus in as good of a shape for riding as they can for u!
