Nice trail if you want to challenge yourself. Plenty of rocks to sit on. :)

HARD. Know that going in it is straight up hard from the get go. The middle part is technical and fun. The trail is marked exceptionally well! The descent is steep. ....tight. Watch your footing. Its a fun trail! Enjoy!

Pretty good nice views

Great hike

It was great at first, but then that was it. I was just expecting more of a workout and something longe, other then that, it was good. About 3/4 in there's a rock formation off to the left (not on the trail) but if you make the effort to hike on top of the rocks, there's a pretty good view.

Great view

Some storms have taken down some trees. The elevation is not bad for such a small trail, but it's not a hiker's challenge. Going up the draw instead of going down was more fun and difficult though.

Great trail to walk or run in Charleston. Beautiful scenery and very well maintained.

Nice, peaceful hike! Quite easy, except for my little scramble up to the Tea Table rocks up top (is there an actual trail up to them? I couldn't find one). I loved the rocks. This was a great stop off the highway (I like to stop off for quick hikes on longer road trips) that I'd never have found without alltrails.

This is a excellent trail for a great workout. There are alot of steep climbs up and down, but very doable. Lots of beautiful nature to see.

Challenging but so worth it

Good easy hike

Decent trail. The Tea Table is a pretty cool sight. Pretty close to some baseball fields, I could hear the bats the entire hike.
