This was my first time on the trail and definitely a tough one. I don't suggest this trail for anyone who isn't moderately in shape. Having completed 30 half marathons the mileage didn't scare me, but I wasn't prepared for just how taxing the elevation change would be. Lots of ups and downs make this a great, challenging hike. Wasn't difficult to maneuver my way around, but the acorns made it a bit tough to keep my footing from time to time. I will definitely do this one again.
Chad S. on Siltstone Trail
trail was great. great day hike. the only thing that needs work is marking of trail heads.
I love the Siltstone trail...actually my favorite trail in Louisville and surrounding areas so far. I have completed it twice with lots of "mini" hikes on it other times and I've come to know it very well. I love the challenging terrain and how it feels very isolated so near the city. My eight year old son has completed three miles at a time with me and he loves it as well.
