Hiked with a small group. It was a great hike with a couple of good stopping points with a view. Truly a moderate hike.

Great time with a small group. Drive forest road to parking area and Hiked in from the parking area. Easy and great view of the falls. You are able to get up and close to the falls.

Absolutely beautiful trail! We went last weekend when it was really cold but my eight-year-old daughter made it to the top no problem!

The views at the summit are absolutely amazing!

Spectacular view from Preachers Rock!!!! Would love to go back at peak fall color next year.

8.7 miles 3 hours. Not much to see but a nice walk in the woods.

Good trail for first time hikers. Plenty of water and campsites. Also has the option to head up to the Blood Mountain Shelter. Seems to be moderate to heavy hiking traffic with sites filling up in the fall.
