Easy to moderate Hike 7 miles

NOTE: My hike is not a fast hike, its more casual slower paced hike, so if you are fast hiker, this hike may not be your hike.

Its been couple of years since I last did this hike, its a very beautiful and nice hike, first 3.8 miles are very easy, and well the rest is moderate, the trail goes along partially on Dicks Creek, and converges with Middle fork broad river, there will be a very minor river crossing at near halfway point. Here I saw a naturally made tree loop, I guess when it was young it was some how rolled in to a loop and it jest kept growing... many indian ruins on the trails well at least I think it is... there are many interesting wild flowers and plants on the trail. (last time I saw a bunny rabbit on the trail along with...)
