All up hill one way. Extremely rocky in long sections. Very uncomfortable on feet even with great hiking shoes. Tough on ankles. Just OK, but mile 2.5 has very pretty view on rock outcropping.

Very enjoyable, once you're at the top relaxing. The hike is challenging, but completely doable. We weren't aware of how steep the hike was when we picked this trail. Towards the end is where it's most steep, but no one complained because the trail was fun and the weather was perfect (October). The view is worth the steep hike, 10x over!!! (I wouldn't recommend it to individuals with crazy knee problems - I wish I had worn a knee brace)

The hike up to the rocks was grueling, but incredibly worth it!

This is an awesome place. I did this hike several times from the Hyaters Gap side in Lebanon, Va. I live just 7 minutes from this entrance and find myself here all the time after a long day and week.

We enjoyed the scenery, it wasn't too crowded. Trail was in good condition and weather couldn't been better.

awesome hike!Further than 5.9 miles...worth every bit of it!beautiful views!

Really awesome hike! The boulders were so fun to climb over. Going back in the fall when the leaves change, the view from the top is perfect. Going to leave our dog home next time!

This trail is hard! See photos. But a lot of fun with the rock scrambles. Takes about 4 hours to complete. Trail is very narrow in places. Can't wait to go again!

Awesome hike gets hard at the bolder field but well worth the views

Met great trail angels when I last walked this one in 2013, including two AT through hikers. One scary narrow place and some rock scrambling. Still, mucho fun, and an excellent late fall hike.

Great climb!

One of the most amazing trails I've ever been on and the climb up the Dragon's Tooth was fun too. AMAZING views!! I loved the rocky sections. One of my all time top 5 hikes ever!

Nice trail, not too difficult, well used. Some views along the ridge-line. The Channels are amazing; this is a must do hike. Did see one bear cub, mama was probably close. Will be returning soon.
