    char roetzel reviewed Broads Fork Trail

    9 days ago

    Parking was beyond overflowing, but as luck would have it, most people were hiking Lake Blanch. There was very light traffic on Broad Fork. Trail is easy to follow. A little overgrown in a few places so pants and long sleeves were helpful. Also, with a gentle breeze, it was still a bit chilly. Trail follows stream for a while and while steep, it was still completely doable for this couple of old broads. Poles were helpful. A few short areas had the dreaded boulders to step up. There was quite a bit of shade. The view at the top is breathtaking.
    My iPhone said it was a 6 mile hike-and 147 floors!
    We both agreed that we would definitely do this hike again.

    Breathtaking views. The parking lot was at capacity on a Monday morning. The trail is well maintained and easy to follow. It’s pretty steep and a few stretches required some boulder climbing. At 50 something, I was glad to have my poles to take some stress off my knees. The Falls are spectacular and there were several groups of hikers soaking up the scenery and stopping for lunch.

    I hiked this trail for the first time-Dec.5
    My friend and I both loved it. We were so glad we had our spikes on and our poles in hand-trail was quite icy. Scenery changed frequently. Trail was pretty easy to follow. It got pretty steep about the last 1/3 mile but it was well worth the effort. We found a nice spot above Falls to sit and enjoy a cup of hot soup. (Thanks Betty). We both can’t wait to go back.

    This was a wonderful hike. It was fairly steep but doable. The trail is wide and easy to follow. The views were remarkable. We did it at a leisurely pace. Stoped for pics and lunch at the top. About 5 hours for this group of old broads.

    The trail is, for the most part, steep. I was glad I had my poles. I started up trail and missed the turn when trail turned South just past bench. There was another trail cut up the side of the stream so I followed it to the bridge. From there I wasn’t sure if I should cross bridge or cut up on the right trail. I chose right-which was wrong. Extremely steep and about 3/4 of the way up, I decided to live to see another day I should go back down. Then I tried crossing the bridge which turned out to be equally treacherous. After taking in the amazing waterfall view, I slid back down to bridge on my butt just to be safe and backtracked to the original trail and took the turn that I missed initially. Heading South on correct trail, the view was spectacular, and while it was still steep in places, it was completely doable. Either way, a pretty trail and a good workout.

    Beautiful scenery. Well defined trail. Well shaded. There were some steep drop offs and inclines so I was glad I had my poles. Well placed boulders or bridge made it easy to cross stream. I'd say it was really only "hard" after 2.5 mile
