Loop starts and ends in the Davidson River campground. Described CCW. Follows Davidson River, then steepens & follows smaller stream up through cove. Hemlock groves near lower end. Levels at top; becomes sidehill; dips into coves & out around ridges. Interesting bridge over deep gully. Mostly mixed hardwood forest; Mt. Laurel/Rhododendron tunnels. Descends moderately to amphitheater again at campground. A must-hike if you're staying at the campground.
