This trail would be perfect for a family hiking trip! The winding path to the top is very smooth with a few rocks every now and then. After about a mile you will reach the summit and it will blow you away. There is one point that you can stand on and get a complete 360° unobstructed view of the many valleys and mountains in the area! It is definitely the most beautiful view I have ever seen on a trail. It took us 2 hours to complete the trail and I will be returning again. All in all, wonderful trail.
Worth it. So worth it.
great view, if the gate is open there is a parking lot about half way.
Fun long hike
This is a nice, not crowded trail, that offers a spectacular view at the top. Better take someone with you for safety, because you may encounter some wildlife along the way. Better to be safe than sorry.
Great trail now you can park at the trail head so hike is only about 1. 2 miles each way and the view is worth every step
Fantastic every time I hike this trail. The view never disappoints even on a cloudy day. It takes less than 30 minutes to reach the top and only one place near the end does it get steep enough to slow you. The road in....well I guess anything worth doing has some challenge. Just be patient getting there.
It's a challenging hike uphill but OMG it is so worth it! The views are breath taking! I took my dog but advise hydration for people and pets. Unlike anything I have ever seen! I'll definitely be going back.
Definitely one of my favorites!
Great short family hike, great views. This mountain has a lot of history, the drive to the mountain is a beautiful drive.
The town of Floyd, is a nice place to visit after the hike, several restaurants to choose from.
Beautiful. An easy hike to see such an amazing view.
Fabulous hike. Great for kids- was able to spend time picnicking and relaxing at the top.
Great trail! Well maintained. The views are incredible and worth the hike.
