Hike the Company Mill Trail

5.6 Miles Total - 600 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally added by Jean-Claude Linossi

Very pleasant trail through woods with wildflowers and a calming river, and the historic remains of an old mill.

Start your hike from the Reedy Creek Parking area. Hike through the woods down to the Reedy Creek. At this point, cross the bridge and hike along the river to the ruins of an old mill and some nice rock formations. Continue up the hill to the River Creek Multi-use trail and then back down the hill to the parking area. In the right season (spring), you may see lots of wildflowers along the way!
