A cool, inviting trail filled with a lush understory of ferns, this trail winds along the stream and follows the gap in the mountain. The terrain changes to a dry, higher elevation that brings the hiker to the mountaintop. Follow the Red Blazes.

While it was confusing when we started on a yellow trail and ended on a red trail, we enjoyed our adventure! We were lucky to see some great views from a few of the places we were! Definitely one I would do again!

This trail system is great. Lots of different options and everything is clearly marked for easy navigation. Grab a map in visitors center and enjoy the views. The Ridge overlook trail is great. Be sure to walk out back of the mansion to a breath taking view. Loved the mansion garden too.

beautiful! Took an easy yellow Kings Hollow trail from the mansion to the steep and beautiful vista .5 mile incline to Ridge Overlook, then continued to follow the yellow blazes to challenging Rock Screen back to the mansion. took maybe 2 hours. We definitely want to go back to check out more trails.

There are numerous trails here. Trail maps are available in the parking area near the mansion. Best view is from the deck/porch at the behind the mansion.
