    This is an awesome hike that provides amazing panoramic views of the valley below at the end. The trail is actually only about 1 mile, the first mile can be driven and then there is a small parking area at the trailhead. It is relatively steep but is steady and not too strenuous, especially for those who have a bit more experience hiking. Even so, there were several children on the trail, so anyone can do it at their own pace, especially because it is a short distance. Coming back is very easy as it is all downhill.

    This trail loop has several different options, depending on which direction you go and if you choose to take the road that cuts through to the other side. We hiked south from the trailhead and it is roughly 3.2 miles of easy hiking near the edge of the lake. The trail offers plenty of spots to stop and enjoy views of the water.

    Blackrock is one of my favorites and it never gets old, no matter how many times you go! It's easy enough for all levels and it's a great hike any time of the year!

    The Bald Knob hike is short (0.5 miles) but extremely steep with an average incline of about 14%. There is a fire road that also goes to the top and that is about a mile long. While it is a difficult hike, it is well worth the effort as the view is fantastic. The trailhead starts on the property of Mountain Lake Lodge, making it easily accessible.

    The Indian Trail is 1.4 miles and circles around the edge of the lake. The trail is covered by rhododendron bushes and lots of foliage. It is not a difficult hike but can be slick due from mud or moss. The trail doesn't offer any views but is pretty itself.

    It was a good hike- we had to cut it short as the thunder that had been threatening all afternoon let loose as soon as we got to the top. It started off with a steep incline but levels out at the top.

    This hike was awesome! Less than a mile to the top and the hike up is very moderate. The overlook has amazing views of the valley- one could spend a lot of time up there!
