I love the history of this trail. Only had enough time to cover four miles before I had to turn around. I would rate it as moderate but definitely broke a sweat on a cool day. Not a lot of views because of trees but I want to go back in the spring when the mountain laurel are in full bloom!

Pleasant hike, very peaceful.

Nice hike through the trees with some pretty creek views.

Not much for views but a nice hike

Great single track trail. Steep but good long trail

Favorite place in the world. It's a "choose your own adventure" with all the optional trails. You can do 4, 6, 8, or 9 mile loops with ease. Great trail running

I started hiking near the NC Arboretum and hiked for a few hours before returning to the car. The trail followed the road. The first few miles were a test of my conditioning. Very enjoyable half day hike.
