good hike or backpack to the top and camp overnight like we did. better be in good shape to hike this one, nice vertical ascends, some narrow areas plus a few wet areas. take emergency supplies with you if your just hiking, plenty of water, maybe some light first aid. there was only one problem we didn't have enough time to hike more. this is absolutely beautiful you have to see it for yourself. get out and enjoy our state and national parks. we are headed to Colorado next then back to the Blue Ridge and Smokey Mountains.

My wife and I went as a photo hike. The trails were closed to the public so we took another trail nearby. I know the recent storms hit the area hard and it shows in these trails with many downed trees and debris along the paths.

Kinda sketchy drive to the waterfall but totally worth it. This is an easy and short trail. Was completely empty when we visited. The view is espectacular and you might be tempted to jump off the water fall. Please do not do that read the signs there have been fatal accidents at this location. Enjoy the view enjoy the sounds that should be enough !!

Hiked the loop counter clock wise. Very well maintained and enjoyable 6 mile hike from parking lot back to parking lot. Flowed well with various up and down hill intervals. Walking beside the creek in many places added a nice peaceful touch to the hike. So history to the location and cool seeing the old damn where the mill was located. Highly recommend for a quick hike and get away.

Awesome trail run. Nice scenic views.

Very easy trail for a nice day hike. The trail is well marked for the novice.

Bear Island is a beautiful hike. Florence did her damage but they have worked hard to restore the island

I had walked to the marina on Nathaniel Greene Trail and I hate walking back on the same trails I just came from, so I took Turkey Trail back to my truck (Almost... had to jump back on Nathaniel at the very end). It was at that point that I saw the sign that Turkey Trail is closed. I don't think I did any damage as it wasn't muddy and I was hiking, not biking. Anyway, I saw deer and it was a good hike back. Longer than the other trail, of course, but both trails were very well kept up. There was one tree down across the trail if you were biking, you'd have to stop and get around it.

I enjoyed this hike to the marina. It was well kept up with only one/two trees fallen into the trail. Where it was muddy, someone had put down something to get across on which was nice. I met only one person on the trail the entire day I was on it. I give it a 5 because there haven't been many trails I've been on lately that didn't have LOTS of standing water. I was happy this one was passable and help if it was wet.

Great trail with a great view at the top! Beware this trail is much longer if the gate at the bottom of the paved road is closed. It turned into a 4.1mi round trip with over 1300ft of elevation. No issues on the dirt road with a small sedan, but it does take nearly 25min of driving on the dirt road to get to the trail.

One of my favorite trails. Very good workout, great views and you're alongside the creek half of the time! Just note that it is a LOT harder going one way than the other, as on one side of Stone Mountain the ascent is very steep with a lot of stairs and on the other it is more gradual. Once you reach the split, if you go left it takes you by the waterfall first but then you've got the stairs up the side of Stone Mountain. Going right is the easier ascent up Stone Mountain and the waterfall will be at the end.

Awesome all around trail

I built a 13.5-mile loop that started on Dutchman Creek Trail and ended with the Uwharrie Trail. It was an excellent hike, and my dogs loved it. The hills were moderately challenging, and there were plenty of streams for water. I recommend water treatment tablets if you choose to drink from the streams. As far as views, the trees prevent anything spectacular, but the terrain itself is pretty.

Wonderful place! You can swim, fish, hike and more. I definitely recommend this place.

It's a gorgeous wooded area. Very busy and muddy after rain.

Better trail than I expected from reading the reviews. Much like other trails in Greensboro watershed trail system. Left from trailhead on Long Valley Rd. The first .9 miles are part of the Bald Eagle Trail. This part is flat, rooty and fairly marshy. We've had a lot of rain over the last month but it hasn't rained in several days and there were spots where you just couldn't avoid the mud. At the .9 mile mark you can turn off to the left onto the Bald Eagle Loop trail proper. This section is hillier, curvier and drier. Nice change of pace leaving the marshy area behind. At the 2 mile mark (total) you come back onto the Bald Eagle Trail near Lewiston Rd. .2 miles up from where you turn onto the Loop. Turning right you head back towards the trail head at Long Valley Rd. My Garmin gave me 3.1 miles total. if you want less mud and are fine with a shorter hike, I suggest leaving from the trailhead on Lewiston Rd. You'd only have to deal with 0.2 miles of moist area on the Bald Eagle Trail. Btw, as of 1/8/19 there were several trees fallen over the Loop portion of the trail. I only came across 1 blocking Bald Ragle Trail from Lewiston Rd to Long Valley Rd.

Nice trail. A lot of roots, so be ready! Ran 5.5 miles

This hike was a really fun one, good workout with the elevation gain. I wasn't bothered by the big parking lot at the top--some people can't hike it, let 'em live. I'm just glad I'm able to hike up to the top, and if you can as well, then I recommend this one!!

Easy, nothing special, but well-kept trail.

Beautiful waterfall

Lots and I mean lots of steps but the view at the top is beautiful and definitely worth it. We loved the tower!

Great place to take the family for hiking, fishing or just having a picnic.

Lovely nature hike around the mountain. Climb is fairly steep. Overlook has a drive to the top which many people take instead of earning it. Pretty nice view. Limited parking around trailhead.

This is a nice trail with some decent views. It’s good for a day hike if you live nearby. Lots of people, though and not enough parking for the amount of people. Trails are well marked- you definitely won’t get lost.

watch out for skeet shooters by the air harbor airport. they were shooting directly over the trail. Great trail otherwise!

To call it a mountain is a stretch and there’s not much of a view at the top but it’s a nice last minute hike. Very easy and well marked and if they actually build the observation tower mentioned, it would be cool. Connecting it to the end of Moonshine run to make it a loop would be nice.

Choose to go here because the rating said low traffic... totally inaccurate. The place was packed on a Sunday afternoon. I do not recommend going if you’re looking for a quiet trail without many people on it.

Very fun! To complete the loop you have to cross the river twice! It would be better on a warm day, we went in the freezing cold, but it made for some great memories
