Great Trail. Well marked & used. Great rocks for climbing, repelling, and bouldering. Climbs the mountain to top about 500' gain, then heads out along the top of the mountain until it hits Center Point Knob. Joins the Appalachian Trail at Center Point Knob (about 1.5mi from trail head)

So beautiful

Great hike! Found it to be moderately challenging in some spots, but overall was easily passable. Hiked out to Center Point Knob and stopped for a drink of water and a power bar, then headed back. Great views from the overlook. Definitely worth the time to do this trail!

A good after-work hike. It meets up with the AT and there is a partial view. Will want to follow AT for a bit to get more distance next time.

Loved the hike but definitely thought it was tough. Was surprised to see so many kids out there. I don't know if I'd bring kids (or dogs) along...I was so busy making sure I wouldn't trip over anything- would be hard to manage another person or an animal. It was really interesting, though and I loved the challenge!

I liked this trail a lot. A very good, well marked, moderate trail. Two good scenic points. The turn around is the mid point marker of the Appalachian Trail. Some very rocky areas that can make it a little challenging for short legs... Only for short distances.

Good quick hike. Rocky and slick if you shoes get wet. Take a few more steps past midway to see the monument and a hiker check in

Just took my 3 boys (ages 11, 8, 3) on this trail. They loved it!!! They all did great! I'm not positive how far we went but we walked an hour and a half and then turned back. Took an hour to get back.

I don't think it is kid friendly. But other than that it was very nice and Ricky:-)

Not too hard, not too easy, just right. Easy and hard option for the rock scramble.

We hike this trail several times each year. The initial ascent is quite steep, but well marked and not treacherous. The rocks at the top are fun to climb on and in winter you get a nice view of the valley. As a bonus, there is little to no poison ivy.

It was amazing a great time. My black lab is 2 years old and had a little trouble but enjoyed the hike.

I really love this trail. The rock scramble is amazing! Challenging enough for a beginner but nothing too crazy. And most of the rock scramble has an easier route or a more challenging one. My dog and wife really liked it too. We completed this hike in just over two hours at a leisure pace.

Husband and I took our 4 kids on this hike ages 3-15. Our 3 yr old and 6 yr old needed support to do this hike. We held their hands and helped them over the rock scrambles. A fun hike for all and beautiful views.

Great time doing this trail. It was a little busy with college-aged kids since it was spring break when I hiked it, but everyone was friendly and knew trail etiquette. The rock scramble at the peak was challenging but do-able, even for someone who isn't too physically fit. I took my time, and even wandered around at the Center Point Knob portion of the AT at the end looking at signs and the sign-in book, ate a small lunch for 15 minutes and went back down. All in all, the trail took me a leisurely 2 hours to complete, an average of 50 min/mile. I would advise anyone to be careful on those rocks if they're wet, it gets pretty steep at the top.
