Perfect weather today for the start of Fall! Knocked out 5.2 miles in 1 hour 28 minutes hiking. Met an awesome couple on Hemlock Ridge. One of my Top 10 favorite trails in the area.

Great scenic hike! Added in Sylvan Pond and Hemlock Ridge 6 miles but not difficult. Highly recommended.

Great trail, but we got a little off track and the terrain got a little rough for our 3 and 6 year olds. Met a few other displaced hikers as well, and found our way out together. Beautiful scenery though, and we will be back.

Great hike even in the rain.

Amazing hike!! So much to see and explore along this trail... you really get a bit of everything. Bring a camera with a nice lens and capture some great nature photos with the family!!! Can't wait to go back!

Incredible hike. One of my favorite. Ice Box Cave was closed due to an initiative aiming to preserve the bats that inhabit the area. Saw many families and couples. Easy hike with incredible views.

Reminded me of Hocking Hills. Love walking amongst the giant rocks.

This trail is beautiful year round. The trees are spectacular and varied. There’s lots of little animals. It feels mostly uphill so it is a great workout. There’s 2 little water areas to add beauty and it’s trafficked enough you don’t feel isolated but never crowded. My favorite trail to date.

A beautiful peaceful place to have a nice walk with the family. Trails are very clean.

Mediocre hike. The falls are pretty in the fall!

Fun hike close to home! Going on the *closed* trail off Mary's cave is our favorite that connects to the Highbridge trail. There are some amazing natural rock arches to be seen! The falls are the 'main' attraction but there is so much more to see and do here!

Great place for a walk any time of the year! Our dog loves the huges hill where most people sled for playing frisbee!

One of my new favorites. So many crevices and different spots to explore! Great exercise too!

One of my most favorite places to hike through! Gorgeous scenery.

Great family hike with serene waterfalls. Friendly trails.

Lovely easy trail along the ledges of large rock formations. The stairway created by the civilian conservation corps is really cool and worth checking out. The signage can be confusing. We ended up doing a loop on the happy days trail and then back on track with the ledges.

Used to love whipps as a kid. Too much garbage now too dangerous for puppy paws with so much broken glass. Sad.

First time and loved it. Took a couple of hundred pictures and finished in 2-1/2 hours. Well maintained trail.

This is one of my favorites in the CVNP. It’s never busy, is fairly remote, and takes you through several different ecosystems. It’s great for dogs too.

I'm a bit of a newbie at trail riding (mtb) but it proved interesting and a few roots and rocks made for a challenge at unexpected times.

Nice hike. I met a group of volunteers who maintain and cleared the trail :) which was very nice. Signs are a bit confusing at times - no biggy. Love the trail and will come back.
