Nice little hike. On the easy side of moderate; very few steep parts only a little rocky near the top. We only did the first 2.2m to the Massanutten trail intersection. No views of the valley from there. Must have to go further for views. The hardest part of this hike was finding the trailhead. If you're coming from the north don't stop at the Elizabeth Furnace campground, go to the picnic area. And the Pig Iron and Furnace part is interesting but go to the left to get to the trail.
Awesome little recreation area! Go there multiple times a year.
