Great for an afternoon hike or run. Has some incline.. I would make the first left to go down the hill, so you don't have to go up the hill at the end..

Appalachian Outfitters spring hiking series. It snowed overnight so everything was very pretty but it melted quickly and was muddy. Lots of other hikers, trail runners and dogs. Nice hour long hike.

Not my favorite hike, but a nice little trip. If you're here, I would reccommend going accross the street to the Happy Lodge/Ledges trail. But a good warm up and walk through the woods.

It was awesome. The incline was a challenge but it was fun .it took us about 2 hours for 3.4 miles. It was worth the hr drive .

Good hike. went in the winter with snow and ice on the trail. consider starting clockwise I think it would be easier due to huge incline at the end

Some moderate up and downs. Nothing breath taking, but usually not crazy busy like a lot of the CVNP trails.
