Gabes Mountain Trail to Greenbriar Creek

We will meet at the Cosby Campground parking lot to begin our adventure. Expect to see a multitude of wildflowers as we cross several creeks (on bridges) and make our way to Hen Wallows Falls at the 2 mile mark. After the falls we will get back on the trail for a creek filled stroll until we reach our turn around point at Greenbriar Creek. Somewhere along the way we will be stopping for a lunch break.

This hike is a difficult D4 with about 2000 feet of ascent. Recent strenuous hiking is required to join the fun.  We will be averaging about 2.7 mph which puts our pace on the high end of moderate.
