One of my all-time favs. It's a rock scrambling haven. Think adult obstacle course. Smooth start to the base serves as a great warmup. The rock scramble is fantastic, and no matter how many times you go, you can go a different route making this a great repeater! Once you reach the top, turn around for a right breathtaking view (if you have any breath left) of those famous Blue Ridges.

great trail, suprised at how well the forest service keeps it up. very well maintained. kudos to those guys

Great views, strong workout, fun rock scrambles.

SHB and I hiked to the top earlier today. Great times, although amazed by number of people arriving by the time we finished up. Good workout. Plenty of dogs ended up at the top surprisingly.

Wanted to start trail running. Seemed like a good one to start with. Nice scenic views.

Spent 2 hours on the trail hiking then hunting for slag at the furnace, back at the beginning of the trail. The trails were well maintained with only a few muddy spots along the way. The kids and dog loved the hike. Great activity with the family.

Love this trail but leave the dogs and kids at home! It's narrow and requires climbing near the top. The views are incredible!!! It is very challenging but worth it. There is also a bus that will take you almost to the top if you only want to do the last few miles.

This hike is totally worth it. It's pretty tuff as most of it is uphill. Loved it though

Awesome trail, not for beginners. Great to train for backpacking

Watch the sunrise and played around on rock outcroppings.

This was hands down the best trail that I have ever been on. The winding mountainside path, the rugged and rocky inclines, the creeks, the breathtaking views, it had it all! The feeling you get when you reach the top of the tooth is incredible. Anybody who wants a 2.5hr to 3.5hr hike that will reward you with sights you will never forget, this is your trail.

Loved this trail - beautiful scenery. Challenging but not too difficult.
