I love the history of this trail. Only had enough time to cover four miles before I had to turn around. I would rate it as moderate but definitely broke a sweat on a cool day. Not a lot of views because of trees but I want to go back in the spring when the mountain laurel are in full bloom!

We enjoyed this trail on Sunday! Hiked to lake Powhatan, even though it's more of a pond, it's beautiful and has some good fishing and this section below the lake is hatchery supported all the way down until you reach the arboretum where there is no fishing. You can make this hike as short or as long as you like. Heavily trafficked area but other than that we enjoyed it and will be going again soon!

Pleasant hike, very peaceful.

This is a very nice, clear, graveled trail. Some gradual elevations. Very few people using it, perhaps because we went on a Thursday morning/afternoon. Enjoyed this with my Mastiff.

Very pretty forest views. I included this trail with my visit to the NC Arboretum.

Nice hike through the trees with some pretty creek views.

Not much for views but a nice hike

Great for trail running

Excellent 3 hour hike. Moderate to start then a nice long down on the second half.

Wide trail, easy elevation. Good groups of hikers.

Super convenient to Asheville in location. Heavily trafficked. Look for Biltmore in the distance when the trees are bare.

Favorite place in the world. It's a "choose your own adventure" with all the optional trails. You can do 4, 6, 8, or 9 mile loops with ease. Great trail running

Beautiful trail but that is not something you will enjoy if you are out of shape. Going clock wise is straight up 100 degrees and humid. Better suited to bikers going counter clockwise. Bring rain gear we got soaked. Water but no falls and no views. This is a bike trail. Ccw is maybe better Gradual incline and a steep decline. Good luck. FML. Going to get beer
