You are likely to see deer, turtles, birds, and other small wildlife on your hike up to the overlook. Once there, the view of the Pee Dee river and Lake Tillery are amazing. It is an easy hike each way, with the exception of the last part leading to the overlook, which can be slippery.

It was a good 5.5 mile hike from the visitor center and pack. The steep portion provides a good challenge making the view from the top even more rewarding. We packed lunches and ate at the picnic area on top of the mountain. Very quiet and peaceful.

The moderate trail was well marked and easy to follow. There isn't a lot to see until you get to the top. The last section is steep but nothing too difficult. I gave it three stars due to people being able to drive to the top. Overall, a good fall hike.

Great view at the top and you can drive to it if you want. The trail connects with the Sugarloaf trail and has a very steep section near the end. Most of the trail is up and down and best hiked in the late fall, winter or early spring when the leaves are off the trees and you can see great views through the forest. Views are much better near the top. Recommend you take hiking poles to help not only on the way up but also to slow you down on the way back. Pretty good workout and some good views. The trail is blazed blue (note the easy Morrow Mountain Loop trail is the easy trail at the top of the mountain blazed red).

Never been a huge fan of trails that you can drive to the top of. The view from the parking lot is great, but the trail doesn't offer anything special.

I loved this trail. I went with my kids, we really enjoyed it. For our first trail it was a little tough, we definitely got a great workout! We will come again as there are several trails.
