The Honey Creek Loop Trail contains some of the most rugged and beautiful
terrain in Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area.
The entire loop trail system is only 5.6 miles in length, travel time is slow and
the going is very difficult. Long steep stairs are located along the Honey Creek
Honey Creek Loop Trail requires hikers to cross-creeks and at times to travel
in the creek bed itself. Travel through boulder fields may require using your
hands and knees to climb over and among boulders. Trail tread in these
sections is often uneven, wet and slippery. Extreme care should be taken
when hiking in these areas.
It is recommended that you do not take young children and pets on this trail.
To be safe and enjoy the scenery, allow a minimum 1 hour hiking time per mile.
