A beautiful walk with magnificent views of Roaring River Park. This is an easy hike from the bottom at the campground to the rim of the ledge and then back down to the campground. The views are very good in early Spring and Winter, the Summer leaves make harder viewing the entire area.
Rugged trail. Trailhead says 1 mile. AllTrails says 2.4 miles. We logged 2 miles hiking the trail then back to the Trailhead through the campground. Some beautiful rock formations along the trail.
Fun hike. poorly marked to get off the dried river bed. walked 1/2 Mike off and had to back track. worth it though.
Great hike, nice bluffs, trail runs the ridge.
Great hike, nice bluffs. trail runs along ridge
it was a very good trail. Going up the steps was tricky. They are uneven. The scenery with bluffs, woods, and creeks was very nice. You had to cross a creek 2 times. It was not deep, but it was cold.
I hiked this trail with my Basset Hound in early November. The trail starts out flat, immediately crossing a (in fall) dry creek bed. Later the trail drops back into the creek bed and follows it for a short distance. It then begins a steep climb up a side canyon. This is steep enough to require steps. The sign at the trailhead warns of 10% grades. The trail climbs up the side canyon beside a smaller dry creek bed for a moderate distance. It then turns back and follows the side of the hill (I'm from Colorado and these aren't mountains) overlooking the campground below. It crosses another side canyon and finally descends back down to the campground. Just before the start of the descent I turned around and retraced my steps back to the trailhead. If you continue you can walk back through the campground. I liked following the trail back through the woods. This trail has some steep climbs and several trips through the creek bed. In spring of after a big rain the creeks will be running so plan ahead. It is very pretty, great fall foliage, and interesting rock formations. A good dog walk also. Even my stubby legged Basset managed it without difficulty.
If you happen to be camping at Roaring River, this is nice short trail to add to your visit. There is a little wooden bridge at one end and some small ledge bluffs at the other. The trail follows along Loop 1 of the campground on the south side.
It was a pretty nice hike, I enjoyed it. On the right side of the trail there is a small cave hidden by the rocks. It is about half way through the trail. The cave is real small you have to crawl for about 20ft until you reach the back room of the cave. The back room is big enough for 3 adults do stand comfortably. the cave continues but it goes strait up, it is muddy and wet. I do not recommend climbing up farther
The trail follows a small stream on the north and west side of campground one at the park. Pleasant walk through the woods. Some rock formations to see.
