Several tricky stream crossings along Big Run.

This is a nice hike. We did the loop the clockwise route with a stop down at Big Run Portal bridge for lunch. The climb up will wear you out. Be sure to fuel up and have lots of water. It was a great time. Lots of folks overnight this one. Enjoy and Hike it.

An enjoyable hike. We did the loop clockwise because we didn’t want a long uphill on tired legs, but it’s really a matter of personal preference. I saw a post by a previous reviewer and decided to wear long pants and bring a pair of clear safety glasses for the bugs. Worked out well. The trail was overgrown in some places, but easy to follow. The hike along the water was enjoyable and you will have to cross several times. You will get wet feet, so either carry water shoes or have dry shoes waiting for the trip home. There was some evidence of foraging along the trail, mostly in the form of overturned rocks, but we didn’t see any bears. Overall, a good day of hiking.

I did this trail counter clockwise because down hill is harder on me, and it was the right move. A few nice views on the way down, but no water access until you get to the bottom. Found a cool campsite next to the creek and had a nice evening. No bears or snakes sighted. The trip back up would have been nice except for the numerous creek crossings that I had to wade across. Some were mid shin deep so shoes were soaked. That wasn’t too bad, but the bugs, mainly the no-see-ums! There were some mosquitoes but I just pulled my buff down to cover my ears and sprayed down my arms and legs and was fine. There must have been 2 billion noseeums, and they all wanted to get in my eyes! Ruined the hike out for me. Constantly swatting at them. I put my sunglasses on to at least keep them out of my eyes but it made the going tough as there was a lot of shade. The trail was overgrown on both the decent and accent and my legs got brutalized by the stinging nettles. Near the top there was a park ranger/trail maintenance guy who said it’s really tough to keep this trail groomed. I won’t do this hike again.

CAMPERS Very fun hike. If you plan on staying the night go counterclockwise. There is no water or campsites at the top of the mountain other than 1 off the path. All the camp sites are in the beginning of the clockwise rotation. Bring extra socks because there is a few extra river crossings. Gorgeous hike, great views.

Well maintained trail, good grading. Remnants of the fire are still visible, and some of the more burned out areas afford some great views. That said, this is not an "easy" hike. It has more than 2k ft of elevation gain and quite a few water crossings, one of which was almost waist deep when we crossed. I made this an overnight hike, going over Brown Mountain on day one. There are some great campsites for larger groups at the trail junction, but if you hike up the Rocky Mountain Trail just a quarter mile further there are some real gems along the water which can't even be seen from the trail.

Did not see one other person on this trail! So if you want solitude this is a great trail. There was one really nice viewpoint form a rocky outcrop looking back at the Brown Mt overlook where we parked and skyline drive.

As an experienced hiker I wouldn’t rate this as easy for SNP. Great for camping.

Really enjoyed the scenery on this one. It was great to be on a trail that didn't have a lot of traffic. it was slightly grown over but not hard to follow. I would not however rate it as easy. The hike out was a monster with all of the elevation being at the beginning/end. Follows a stream the whole way and even found a spot to jump in. Stumbled on a mama bear and cub but once I started clapping at them they took off in a hurry. Overall nice hike but the hike out really busted my butt.
