A good stroll in the woods for a weekend.
Nice and quiet trail through the woods. If you are first time there, get a trail map from the Visitor Center, and follow the trails.
Great trail and quiet
Fairly easy trail through the woods. No major hills or rocky areas. This can be combined with the Billy Goat Trail to make for a nice, though challenging, hike.
Lovely trail! A little hard to follow the trail signs. Lots of options for adding distance to your hike with additional side trails.
We extended our hike to 6.13 mikes by doing the gold mine spur then the gold mine loop, then doubling back to take the woodland trail to the Anglers Spur and finishing up b takingbthevtowpath back to lock 20. Very nice hike. Itvwas a new best for me during my trainibg forva solo thruhike of the C&O. New pack and 28.5 lbs.
