This trail begins at the gate on FS 3509 and follows gravel road for one mile. At this point, the trail leaves the gravel road and follows an old wooded road into a cove. The path then steadily climbs Green Ridge and crosses Dry Creek headwaters. The trail eventually reaches Green Ridge Mountain's crest, which it follows to its terminus with the Appalachian Trail.
