Bring a good pair of shoes and trekking poles/sticks. This trail is STEEP. Also note the trailhead has a river with no bridge. There are some rocks for crossing, but plan on dipping your feet in.

My sister and I did this loop this past Friday (started around 2pm)- Sunday. The trail through Whiteoak Canyon was coated in ice in places, but we were able to maneuver safely and water crossings weren’t too bad. The weather wasn’t ideal, but we stayed in the Rock Spring Shelter on the AT as others have recommended on Friday night, when it rained 3-4 inches and was just above freezing. The shelter itself has a lot of roof leaks, so be prepared to get a bit damp. We unfortunately missed all of the views along the AT due to rain and fog, but it was a pleasant enough hike. Lots and lots of flooded bits of trail. Definitely some intense creek crossings heading toward Old Rag! We were thankful that our camp shoes worked as water shoes because we did get our feet pretty soaked through. We opted to camp along Weakley Hollow Fire Road the second night, where dispersed camping was a little challenging (few flat spots) but doable. Finally had a beautiful morning the last day to climb Old Rag. The trail had a few crowded spots, but the boulders at the scrambles were surprisingly not too slippery or icy despite the recent bad weather. The trail down was pretty muddy and icy in spots, but certainly a welcome relief after the climb with our packs. The last mile or so back to the parking lot is a walk along an asphalt road. This was definitely doable over 3 days/2 nights and a great choice for a long weekend loop.

A little boring, but the variety of fallen trees was quite nice. The lake was pretty as well.

The trail was nice. Very rocky for the first mile. A little disappointed at the 1.5 mile mark you had to turn around. Was hoping it would loop back around. It was all uphill going back so be prepared for that. All in all it was a good hike.

I hiked the blue trail today and like others have said, you can hear traffic from rt 29. However, I found this was only an issue if you are close to the trailhead. Otherwise, the trail takes you far enough out to where you can't hear the road at all. This trail is flat can be used by horseback riders, mountain bikers, and joggers as well. Trail is maintained and clearly marked. At the time I went, it was super muddy in some parts, but I don't mind this at all. My favorite part was walking through a large patch of pine trees and letting my dog run around and explore. I only saw one other person at the time I went. would come back when its warmer out.

Pretty straightforward loop. Some small inclines, a nice casual walk. Loop took about an hour and 15 minutes.

Easy enjoyable hike for dogs and friends. Did the Dorsey loop which is approx 2.5 miles. Easy to follow markings and path is clear cut.

the trail stops at about half the length as advertised on the app. so only about 0.3 miles till you have to turn back. the trail itself is beautiful with great views...just thought it would be longer.

This is a really great trail. I loved all of the wooden carved animals that were listed along the hike, it made following the trail really fun. It is true that the hike is more about 7 miles or so if you do the whole loop, but is not very difficult and does have a mix of up and down so it balances out. Easy if you only do a portion, moderate if you decide to complete the whole loop. I would recommend bringing a portable charger for your cell phone and I would also advise taking a picture of the trail map prior to going on the hike (provided at lower trail parking). I made it easy for myself by saving the image as my phone lock screen so I could quickly reference it without losing battery. The most confusing times of the trail were in the beginning close to the bears (basically any part before the owls). I did end up making a detour near the bears, but it was fine because I found extra carvings of a turtle bench near the reservoir which was a fun bonus. The only downside to this is that you hear a lot of car traffic from the highway, that’s why I gave it four stars instead of five. I definitely recommend this hike to anyone in the Albemarle area. I only saw one other person out the entire time and it was near the end. If I had kids I would definitely take them here and let them try to figure out the map. I would also come back here to go mountain biking. Overall there’s a lot to see and it’s not a very difficult hike. Took me about 3 1/2 hours to do the whole loop and I stopped to take a ton of pictures. Enjoy!

Would not call this an easy trail for walking; moderate. To me easy is flat ground. It has hill down to the main trail, which means a hill up to the end. Definitely start at the playground. Because the trailhead path down to the trail is a little washed out and a couple of the steps are steep.

Trail closes at four. Groundskeeper will not let you in up to ten minutes before four. Kind of a let down.

Pretty sure that the person who made these paths was toking up. It’s all over the place and often not marked. That said, still a fun adventure with my family.

a nice climb but no good viewpoint at the top. the bottom of the trail is a little muddy from recent rain but dries out pretty quickly as you go

Beautiful trail with water views and moderate amount of uphill challenges. Lions bridge with gorgeous view of the James River is a must see! Dog friendly!

Awesome trail. This was my first trail run here and I loved it. There was mud in some parts from the recent rain but it was very manageable. The thing I really liked were all the side loops which means you can make every run you do here look a little bit different. There were a lot of people here with dogs and fishing poles so there is a wide variety of activities you can do here. I will definitely be back!

Very easy trail, kept clear.
