One is greeted by what, at first, appears to be a verdant herb layer. This is just a ruse as daffodils, periwinkle and an acre of multiflora rose dominate the entrance to the trail. McDowell County consistently has solid, tall tree sites. This is an exception. One nice thing is how green the hemlocks are.
