easy trail for our little pup

I combined the Black Mountain CT trail and the first portion of the Byrd Mountain / Grassy Cove trail as an overlook-to-overlook hike. This formed a ~14-mile out-and-back, including boulder exploring and the Windless Cave spur. Black mountain has massive stone formations, a great overlook area, and a fairly gentle slope.  Byrd mountain trail is a bit steeper but follows atv routes for the most part, and the overlook has a stunning, unobstructed eastward view of Grassy Cove and beyond.  My app claimed 3800' total elevation gain but that seems off.  Highly recommended.

it's a good one

Trail is well-marked and mostly well-maintained, but there are some narrow places with slippery terrain (especially with autumn leaves on the ground). I've been on the trail a number of times with no problem, but a friend recently fell climbing over a dead tree in the path and broke her wrist. Be careful!

Beautiful, easy hike and even better view!! Caution with children as you do end up on a cliff!

Nice short hike. Sunday morning this well-marked trail was not busy at all.

Nice hike for most anyone to enjoy.

Nice urban area to take a walk, better during the week

nice trail too many restrictions and people go up be yes co to see old Indian bluffs

Enjoyable stroll around the lake - easy walk with no notable changes in elevation. Not the most scenic trail and narrow in spots but clearly marked and quiet even on the weekends. Good for dogs who can get water from nearly every point on the trail.

went with the church youth group. Good for an afternoon hike. Not the most scenic trail I've hiked, but good for groups with varying experience or for a casual hike.

I only covered a small section but it was gorgeous! The bridge beauty contrasts the natural beauty of the woods and water.

Steep ascent from the Grassy Cove trailhead, but beautiful scenery of valleys below (winter viewing) upon arrival at the top. While trail is blazed (white), trail splits and intersections with nearby private property boundaries are not well marked or posted.
