Amazing hike. The rock scramble is tough but great fun.

Great trails for mountain biking, maybe not so much for hiking. Tons of windy single-track makes this super fun to ride. There’s a pump track and a built up area called “the ridge” which is pretty fun. It’s mostly flat but the windy trail makes it more fun and challenging.

So fun! The scrambling is challenging but fun. Gorgeous in the fall.

This place has an incredibly gorgeous waterfall called Looking Glass Falls and mild rock climbing if you want to get closer to the waterfall. And not far from there is Sliding Rock, which is also a waterfall but different in that you can actually slide down the whole thing like you would a water slide at a water park. It's gorgeous. Traffic was minimal, at least when we went it wasn't bad. It was really nice.

Another great day hike. Took my gf and her son out for the day and had a blast. Heavily trafficked, but you’re still able to find your own space

Fairly strenuous, though the switchbacks make it manageable. Take water as there’s none up top. The view off the bald face is amazing but do watch your step. Hammock camping on the top is epic.

Very nice hike. Look forward to seeing it in the late spring.

Great hike. Good difficulty level going up, with interesting rock scramble. Nice walk down the trail to cool down and relax

One of my favorite hikes to do!! Challenging in a good way!

Great hike!

One of my most fave hikes I have done! Would of been better if my buddy was in better shape. They held me up on pace. But you can actually bring a hammock and pitch it up at the peak and be fully relaxed through the day and have a pic nic too!

This was the most fun trail I’ve done. Getting ready to do again soon. Challenging? Yes. Doable? Most definitely. Just do your due diligence and wear gloves with some traction to help get you up some rocks as many areas are slippery due to the amount of traffic it gets. Also, eat and drink what your body needs before, during and after or else you can cramp up, etc.
Stop and enjoy the scenery. I prefer to start early to avoid most of the crowd.

Excellent and challenging trail for my wife and I ! I'd say it was made much more difficult after the prior night dropped an inch of snow. Areas were icy, which made the rock scramble harder than needed to be but good teamwork saw us pass the test. by far the longer and hardest trail for a couple in early 40s (most everyone we saw easily 10 yrs our junior), but fun and quite rewarding. Awesome views a bonus!

Trail is definitely longer than 5.3. more like 6.5 or so miles. The view at the end is worth it.

Fairly slick with some ice and snow on the rocks, but the trail and views were great. Highly recommend!

Nice urban hike. We went during a rainy day with heavy fog which created deep and wide puddles. The area around the walkways was really muddy. We were not wearing the right shoes for it. Nevertheless, beautiful views of the monuments. Easy walk.

Great little trail, nice incline to a beautiful summit. Took about an hour round trip! Worth the climb for the beautiful view.

sweet views at the top. really enjoyed this trail, its a good workout but not long enough to be too challenging tho.

I went on this trail with my son's Boy Scout troop in October of 2017. The trail was awesome. Great views and great rock formations. If you don't like boulder hopping then this isn't the trail for you. So pack a lunch and hike to the top and find a spot to enjoy the views and lunch!

Best hike I’ve had so far. Definitely worth going in the off season, hardly any traffic. Went with a group of friends and we definitely built a stronger bond because we used a lot of teamwork due to the obstacles(ice, rain, height difference, experience, etc.)

Hiked this trail in the rain, which got a little dicey at times, but it was definitely worth it! Because of the weather we only saw only about 4 or 5 other people on the trail the entire day. The downside was that we could hardly see anything from the top of Old Rag due to all the fog, but it was still a really fun hike.

great hike

Definitely my favorite place I have been hiking. I am 19, 5’7”, and around 180lbs so im not in the best shape, but I have a passion for scrambling. It was 10° when I got there but after about a half hour of hiking I actually needed to remove my hoodie! I see people mentioning the need for significant upper body strength but imo it wasnt really as important as people chalked it up to be. One thing that did cause some problems: My height. There are a few points where you need to scale the face of a boulder and the shorter you are, the harder it is (Though I managed to get by). Another thing that happened was about halfway through the scrambling my calves began to “lock” into place and hurt whenever I plantar flexed (bent foot toes facing down). I had a sports drink with me which reduced the problem in a matter of minutes, so if you arent used to this type of terrain, I highly recommend you bring something with plenty of electrolytes in addition to water. I would say as long as youre prepared, and somewhat in shape (but willing to push yourself), this is a hike worth making the trip for!

Great trail with some fun rock scrambles. I went up the rocks which was more fun and am sure safer as well when out alone. I like the solitude of trail hiking so did the loop at about 8:30 and took me about 3.5 hours of moving fairly quick and and only saw maybe 12 people. Best getting the popular trails done in the off season. Will definitely be a trail I’ll have friends do as well.

Busy but one of my favorite hikes

Just amazing views at the top. Love the rock scramble. Very busy trail. The fire road, which is the last 5 miles of the loop is rather boring, but it allows you to rest after scrambling.

must have strength of Steven seagal for the top portion of this trail.

More difficult of a trail, but well worth it when you get to see the gorgeous views at the summit. Recommend to bring snacks and plenty of water for this hike because it’s an all day adventure. I’ve done this trail twice now and it’s something I always look forward to doing again.

Added to my favorite list! I did this loop different by parking at the Berry Hollow parking area and started my hike from there. It is 3.3 miles to the Ridge Trail going down the Weakely Hollow Fire Road. From there the Ridge Trail takes you up to the ridge and on through some nice rock scrambles with some challenging climbs (especially when covered in ice). There are some awesome views along the way. Once you reach the summit, it is a nice area for a snack or lunch break. From there I continued on with the loop by going down the Saddle Trail and followed it to its end at the junction with Old Rag, Berry Hollow, & Weakely Hollow Fire Roads. From there it was a short hike back to the parking area. I logged 10.9 miles on this hike.

Tough but worth it
