One of the more strenuous trails I've hiked, with the gain being somewhere around 900 feet / mile. The trails coming off the AT - particularly the North Trail - are not the best marked, but when you find them you will be blown away by the views!

Pleasant hike with moderate incline. We hiked in and out but you can make a loop. We’ll be back for sure.

Took North and South scenic trails, which are more difficult and have a lot of sun exposure. The AT sections were easier and had coverage. Great loop. Wear sunscreen and a hat!

It was tough to do and an awesome challenge. But take the “scenic route” that is an off shoot of it. It adds a little bit of distance but walks along the open side of the mountain.

It was a perfect January day for a hike here. It is peaceful and well marked. Follow the blue markings.

Views in the winter are much better, especially with snow providing a contrasting backdrop.

One of my favorite places to hike. The view is outstanding. To go as far as Raccoon Ridge, it's an out and back trail, But you can make it a loop by connecting the Keiser and the Copper mine Trail. Love all the trails near the Mohican Outdoor Center.

We did the Appalachian trail and Blue trail loop. Great day hike with views on blue trail

Great hike, though I'd call it an intermediate following the regular trail— only if one takes the south trail loop (as shown in map) does it become a difficult trail, with lots of seriously fun but occasionally treacherous rock scrambling. Great views at certain spots, there's a spring about one mile from the trailhead. Overall, a pretty decent day hike, even in late November.

I enjoyed the diversity this trail offers. I hiked it from Old Forge Picnic Area so it is a slow but steady climb; the first third meandered literally in and out of the stream (it had rained for the past 24 hours) and there were some lovely small water fall areas.The switchbacks on the upper 2/3 of the trail are wide and not rocky, so the climb is not hard. It was incredibly windy and cold at the top (forecasters said there were 40mph gusts today) but much of the rest of the trail was calm and enjoyable.

Solid hike with my dog. Beautiful weather and some nice views. Just a few other hikers on the trail. Peaceful.

A bit difficult to find the trailhead. Keep on the main (dirt) road, I believe it's Swift Run. You'll eventually come to the "parking lot" on the left which is unmarked but hopefully will have some cars parked so you know it's the Trail. We had a better time using AllTrails than Google to find it.

Really neat trail with gradual elevation increase. The vista is worth it. The trail is wide and forgiving, you're not riding a ridge. I took the blue blazes around Heritage Cabin up and back. I planned on taking the full loop, but friends bailed half way through. Used the out & back option.

Absolutely beautiful fall hike and great vista. For newbies better than Sunset Rocks which is at the North end of the forest. I want to come back and do the full loop.

Really liked this one! I went past Bear Rocks to Bake Oven Knob, which I recommend. Great views; in late September, when I went, it was lightly trafficked. Trail is extremely well-blazed as of 9/17.

Relatively easy trail as long as you wear boots. Expect it to take around 3 hours depending on your pace. We weren't in a hurry.

Definitely stop in at the AMC hut to get a map, they are very nice and helpful! Thoroughly enjoyed the hike up to and along the ridge, beautiful views once you reach the top! As another reviewer mentioned you'll know you're almost there when you see the Worthington State Forest sign.

First 1/2 mile is steady uphill but well worth it! Lots of snakes today (6 that we laid eyes on) but the views were spectacular! Trails are exceptionally well maintained and marked. Huge thank you to those who recently weed whacked the trails!

Amazing views! Favorite hike.

A tough uphill for the first mile or so but the North Trail views were spectacular and so worth the climb. Definitely going back in a few weeks.

Try to go on this hike middle of September , 14,15,16,17, there will be the scientists up there doing the migrating raptor count it's very cool!

Awesome hike! Uphill but not overwhelming. The view and the rocks at the top are worth the trek. Trail is well marked and we followed the blue trail the whole way.

Very uphill hike but the view is worth it! make sure pack water and good shoes, enjoy!

Good hike...We turned this trail into a loop trail by starting with Woodpecker trail at the Nature Center, AT, then second entrance to the North Trail, came down to Charcoal trail and then Prairie Grass trail around back to Nature Center. Approx. 7 miles.

Good hike. Used five of the trails to make a 7 mile loop. Warning that the Charcoal trail is NOT well maintained. Had a great hike and the scenery was spot on. Great day!
