This was a great hike. My daughter who is 9, our 25lb mutt, my husband and I really enjoyed it. We were lucky to park in one of the three spots at the trail head but it looked like there was more available about 1/2 the way we came in. Luckily we spoke to two hikers who knew this trail and were able to give us a few tips. The first is that trail doesn't start out blue. You have to follow the white trail across from the three car parking. There will be a split between blue and the white trail. The blue trail is. the easier of the two but still a uphill workout. If you want a more challenging hike with more rock climbing go white. We took blue and came back down white and we were really happy we did. The view from the top is a great view. We hardly saw any other hikers going up and were surprised to see groups of hikers also enjoying the view. Overall it's a really nice hike not too long but long enough to feel acomplished.
This was a nice quick 2-hour hike. Taking the blue trail up then the white trail (AT) down, doing the loop clockwise is easier than the other way around. The parking at the Old Forge Rd where AT crossed the road is very limited (max 4 cars). But a half mile before that point there is a large parking lot with plenty of spaces.
A very wonderful surprise. Be prepared for a steep climb.Use the grassy trail to the left to go up ,rocky trail to come down. We'll worth it.
BEAUTIFUL!!! We have lived with this under our nose our whole life and yet have never been here. Hiked the loop clockwise...you could hear trickling water most of way up and many spots of seeing calm small pools and waterfalls. Will definitely be back! Our puppies loved it. Great exercise!
Nice New Years day hike! Took AT to the top, a little more challenging, then the Blue trail back down. Def will get your blood moving! Should be beautiful in the Spring!
