Out and back hike used for hiking.
really enjoyable hike, wouldn't rate it as hard most of the hike you're on the ridge line. Vistas were amazing overlooking the lake, Hay rock itself was slightly underwhelming but awesome none the less
loved the different terrains in this hike. beautiful trail and even more beautiful views. i wouldn't necessarily say this trail is difficult, more like moderate.
I wouldn't call this a hard hike. It's a bit long, but about the same ad McAfee's, but the inclines were not difficult. Beautiful views! The rock at the end is a bit dangerous, but extremely cool and worth it. It shouldn't be climbed by children.
This was an incredible trail with amazing views. The changing terrain was wonderful. There was always a new "feel" to where you were running. The rock climbing sections added a bit of fun too. The split logs were interesting to run on. The power lines didn't bother me. There is a huge elevation climb in about a mile and a half and then it's Rocky for awhile so you really have to pick up your feet if you are running which is harder after the 1000 ft elevation climb but that's good for training even though it was hard. I loved it!
Great! Slightly difficult but it was hot out. The views are so pretty. I don't know why people complain about the power line. It's actually very cool to see... Never seen one up close and you just pass it halfway through the hike. It's not bothersome at all! I'd definitely go again.
Parts of the trail were tough but the views were worth it!
one of my favorites. have done this section four times in the past 6. months. loooove
still on it :)
It was my favorite hike I've been on.
At times one is forced to face man made structures like rail tracks, road and power lines that ruin the views, but over the view is worth the hike.
This is a fun hike if you don't mind the power lines you encounter about half way through. Once you get past them the views of the Cove and of Daleville make it worth while. A little bit of light rock climbing adds some variety to the trip. A fun family hike.
