Great quick hike

Great trail for a beginner hiker. The rock face view at the end is great. Bring some sandwiches and water and relax for a while when done. Also like the hard or easy split. Have completed this trail twice now.

Be aware that the gps will take yoi to a spot on the trail where yoi cannot park. Go to the parking area by the AT Museum and then begin the hike. Beautiful trail and the climb up the rocks is well worth it!

For a beginning hiker it was a huge challenge. Well that and being out of shape lol. Gorgeous view halfway through and it is a lesser used trail so it's very quite.

Love this trail. As a beginning hiker I loved the option for less steep option. I am definitely going to frequent this trail. Best part is the frequency of log benches to break on.

Super fun trail with a nice view at the end. There are two ways to get up the mountain, you can chose between steep and then the less steep. 10/10 would hike again

Great hike for us and the dogs. We will definitely be do this again in the near future. The GPS is wrong on here, ignore the first lo e leg and head strait to the y of the loop. There is parking there.

One of my favorites in the area because of the diversity. I typically park near camp Michaux and walk the loop from there.

Great mini hike. If you're looking for something that won't take all day with a beautiful view, this hike is perfect. We were out for about an hour and a half. A little steep in some spots but they have an option to take a less steep path. Would definitely do again.

I would not rate this trail as easy, it was definitely a bit more difficult, especially taking the steeper trail to get to the top. But the view is gorgeous and well worth it.

View is worth it, but I wouldn't rate it as easy, misleading to beginner hikers

It was a little tame, but I wore my swimmies in case. I'm happy to report I only flipped twice and drank 1/2 gallon of water. Weeeee!

Some spots were difficult but the reward at the top is worth it

a little steep in spots ... view from the top is excellent!
