As you continue hiking, you will eventually arrive at the spot where Mouse Creek Falls drops into Big Creek. This is a great spot to turn around and hike back to the parking lot/campground for a fairly short hike (4 miles roundtrip). Look for the horse-hitching rack. If you continue, you arrive at Campsite 37 in Walnut Bottoms, a beautiful secluded site in a nice spot for spring wildflowers. This would make for a roughly 10.5 mile roundtrip hike. On the way to Campsite 37, you may notice a trail off to the left(south) a few hundred yards before Campsite 37; this is Swallow Fork Trail; this trail eventually meets with Mt.Sterling Ridge Trail that takes you to the summit of Mt. Sterling, although this is a strenuous hike of several more miles.
