Great trail Black Balsam was beautiful this weekend! The plaque for the trail was missing though

Part of the trail is still closed from storm damage but the overlook is still open and offers a scenic view of the river.

This was my favorite hike I've ever done! Highly recommend. Definitely start with the summit.

Don't take a dog that you can't get up a ladder. But this is a great hike.

A truly pleasant hike with outstanding views.

My 5, 8, and 10 year old enjoyed the hike. Super easy and 360 degree views!

This trail is definitely strenuous and NOT dog friendly. Badass trail, though. It took me 4.5 hours and I was exhausted by the end.

Absolutely amazing. Some parts are hard especially if caught in the rain. But well worth the view.

the trail is nice. if you need to exercise hike to the greybeards summit otherwise Walker's knob on the way is a lot better view than the greybeards summit.

The view at the top is truly worth all of those stairs.

Our gps said 10.4 . Technically very difficult. Would not go again after any recent rain. The approx 8 waterfall crossings where very dangerous with the steep drop offs and rushing deep water, made my us nervous. Beautiful hike that is fairly well demarcated and we saw no one else on the trail.

Great hike with fantastic views. Lots of obstacles to go over and under as well as many rocks to climb.

My gps said I did 6.5 miles for this loop. It was strenuous. Uphill both ways. Lots of steps. Took me and my pup about 4 and a half hours. Stopped at top of rock for snack and rest. It was a really nice hike though.

Great trail! Slight inclines, but nothing too difficult. This was my puppy’s first hike with hopefully more to come.

gorgeous babbling Brook, great view!

Good work out on this one.
As many have stated up hill both ways - in a way this was good, it provided a good work out thru out.
The big prize are fabulous views on top. We stoped for lunch and threw the ball around for our dog.
The abundance of leaves made it a bit slippery in spots.
Well marked, light traffic.

Amazing views my 10 year old loved this trail. Bring your camera for great photo op!

I hiked this on 11/12/18 and despite being rather overcast, the views were still stunning at the summit. I spent the night in the parking lot and started out at sunrise. This was a great hike, and a truly rewarding experience. Leaves and some sprinkling rain made parts rather slippery, but was all to be expected in mid-November.

this was easy for the first 1.7 miles, the last bit was a thrilling adventure. lots of climbing and lots of rocks. incredible qnd fun

An old favorite after a week of rain. Rivers and creeks full. Trails in overall good shape.

Beautiful trail, some wonderful trail work has been done, thank you to whomever! There has been a lot of rain the last week in the falls were absolutely beautiful!

Did this on a cold day in November with beginner hikers. Great little hike for everyone to an awesome hidden waterfall with photo ops.

The trail isn’t what it once was. The trail is marked as moderate at the trailhead but is actually a little more strenuous than most trails. I’ve hiked this trail for years and year after year the trail is less clear with more large rocks which could easily cause serious bodily harm, such as broken ankles. I’m not sure how all trails can rate this as easy.
All this being said, it is not an easy trail but I do still love to hike it.

Hiked this trail on Wednesday. The weather wasn’t the best, visibility was very poor from the summit and I just loved it! The sound of my boots on the trail, the echo of birds calling, the rain beating against my pack, and a dog barking in the distance set the scene for my peaceful trek to the summit via the AT. It was very muddy and I stumbled a time or two and actually fell once due to the slippery trail. My trekking poles were a tremendous help on this day.

We did this hike with our dog last weekend and it was amazing! We got there at 7:30 am on Saturday and got the last actual parking spot in the lot, so definitely get there early. We did the trail up and the fire road back. Trail is definitely more difficult but it’s fun for the way up. The views at the top are absolutely amazing and definitely worth it!

Pleasant trail. Many viewpoints along the canyon ridges. Expect heavy traffic on weekends...

I've hiked this trail twice now and it's probably my favorite on the east coast. It's definitely not for the inexperienced or out of shape, but the grueling path is more than worth it. The MacRae Peak path features stunning view after stunning view. Make sure to give yourself plenty of time to take them all in and enjoy the fantastic vistas in all directions. The ladder climbs and rock scrambles can be nerve-racking but are a lot of fun at the same time. I took the Underwood Trail on the way back down which is a bit less strenuous and having gravity on your side makes the going a bit easier. It's easy to see pictures and hear from others about the sights along the way, but one thing you have to experience firsthand is the smells on the trail. You're hiking in a mostly alpine environment and the conifers give a refreshing piney scent for almost the whole way; it's like walking through a christmas tree farm.

Great hike, uphill the whole way! Make sure to turn left at the “William’s Pulpit” sign to get to the overlook... Bartram Trail continues for another 100 miles. Great views! Hike has a few waterfalls along the way too.

Breath taking views from the top! Slippery when wet, gets real muddy in the rain. Wear appropriate shoes.
