South Mills River to Wagon Road Gap Loop
6.6 mile loop hike, starting and ending at Turkey Pen Trailhead in Pisgah National Forest, NC. I followed South Mills River upstream, crossing the stream twice on two swinging bridges, then followed Wagon Road Trail up to the ridge line, and followed the very up and down Turkey Pen Gap Trail back to the trailhead.Read More

Elevation ProfileOf the hike highlighted in this gallery. Starting and ending at Turkey Pen Trailhead, I went first along South Mills River Trail, then up Wagon Road Trail, then left on Turkey Pen Gap Trail back to the Trailhead. The super steep descent between mile 5.0 and 5.5 is the trail up to/down from Sharpy Mountain ... tough in either direction.
