Trail Description

Middle Prong Trail is a 4.1 mile waterfall hike that is often turned into a day loop. Along the way you'll find Indian Flat Falls and Lynn Camp Falls as well as many other smaller cascades.

There are a couple of ways to turn this into a nice loop hike. The longer of the two options uses the Appalachian Trail as a connector between Greenbrier Ridge and Miry Ridge Trail for a total of 21 miles - a doable day hike for those experienced enough and willing to wake up quite early. The shorter loop is the more obvious one: Middle Prong to Lynn Camp Prong to Miry Ridge and Panther Creek, then back down Middle Prong again for a total of 16.7 miles.

Long loop: Middle Prong Trail: 4.1 miles Greenbrier Ridge Trail: 4.2 miles Appalachian Trail: 2.4 miles Miry Ridge Trail: 2.5 miles Lynn Camp Prong Trail: 3.7 miles Middle Prong: 4.1 miles
