Comments
Comments: After turning R when leaving the kiosk, keep to the R at the muddy section about 5 minutes down the trail. If you don't you will find yourself on another trail/road that runs thru the area.

They should rename the Carter Ledge Trail the Endless Ledge Trail. It's pretty rugged and relentless, but very scenic. A few of the ledges require great care (foot and hand placement) and would be pretty dangerous if wet. The WMG is not exaggerating in it's description.
