Amazing views, very clear trail and footing easy for running shoes. Challenging 3-4 hour hike!
Very private with nice views. I saw many deer and heard many wild turkeys. Very peaceful.
2/6/15: Nice trail, a bit confusing. It was more challenging coming back. Beautiful scenery.
This was a little more than easy. My daughter and I at 80 had only one area where it was a little narrow. Other than that it was a good hike.
This is a very nice area for trail running. Ran a 10 mile loop starting from the Grizzly Flat parking area. Thru Saratoga Gap, down Charcoal Rd, then back up Grizzly Flat trail. Saw very few people on the trail, so bring a friend to be safe. Nicely shaded along single track and fire roads. Some decent elevation change so this is a good workout.
