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.
My nephew and I hiked this trail. View worth the climb. Shame only open a couple months a year. Great views, great rock out croppings, and nice clear trail. Only negative was the road to trail head is a little challenging. Will do again next year!
Beautiful 360 degree views!
Great hike with well maintained trails. Awesome views at the summit, but prepare for high winds and cooler temperatures.
It was a beautiful hike and the views were stunning.
If your car has some road clearance, you can drive following the Va DCR directions and park at the parking lot. Then the trail is about 1 mile up.
Many swtichbacks. Interesting to have patches of rhododendron growing on the south side of the mountain; otherwise fairly ordinary hike up.
When you get to the top the official trail seems to stop, but there are a total of three rock outcroppings you can walk to.
