    Gary Flora reviewed Tinker Cliffs/Andy Layne Trail

    3 months ago

    Tough hike. Trail is rough in spots due to heavy use. Gets a lot of use because it is the direct route to Tinker Cliffs.

    Heavily traveled, iconic photo spot. Parking can be difficult. If you want an easier option, hike up the trail and down the fire road. I have done this on sunset hikes.

    I have hiked this many times. Fun trail with a rock scramble near the top. It can be crowded and parking can be tough especially on weekends.

    Gary Flora reviewed Bright Angel Trail to Phantom Overlook to South Kaibab Trail

    3 months ago

    I did this on July 12. I was hiking up from Phantom Ranch. It was very difficult due to the heat and elevation. An early start is recommended.

    Easy walk in the woods. Great Lake views. Pretty flat.

    Gary Flora reviewed Devil's Marbleyard Via Belfast Trail

    This is an easy hike. Kids will love climbing on the rocks. Just watch for snakes. I tried to do the loop but couldn't find the trail where it intersects so I turned around. Be prepared if you try this and attempt to bushwhacked. Parking can be a challenge. Great hike at a unique place.

    Gary Flora reviewed Rock Castle Gorge Loop

    This hike has it all. Strenuous climbs, open pastures, woods, streams, views, and even an original AT shelter. I would suggest starting at the bottom of the gorge and getting the hardest climb out of the way at the beginning.

    I did this on 10/16/15. I have hiked Leconte multiple times and it is always great. We spent the night at the lodge which was awesome. This is a must do.

    Gary Flora reviewed Appalachian Trail: Sinking Creek Mountain

    almost 2 years ago

    This is one of my favorite sections of the AT around Roanoke. I hiked nobo. It is a steep start then goes along the ridge before descending. Awesome views if the leaves are off. I saw signs of bear activity.

    Steep but easy. Wonderful views. Very crowded. It is a little uneasy getting to the end because I didnt have confidence in the people around me.

    Gary Flora reviewed Old Rag Mountain Loop Trail

    almost 2 years ago

    i hiked during the week and it was still crowded. I went up the trail and the elevation gain is similar to the Bright Angel Trail but not as long. Great views and unrivaled rock hopping at the drop. It is a must do. Not recommended if you are not in decent shape because there are areas where you will have to pull yourself up.

    The summit was covered in the clouds. The entire hike was in the clouds. Temperatures were cool, and my hair and clothes filtered the water from the clouds. A very unique hike. I hope to do it again some day.
