Super fun hike with lots of shifts in topography. My nine year old and I started at the church and ended at the parking lot on Cecil Ashburn. The trip was roughly 2.5 miles and took us a little over an hour. My wife dropped us off and picked us up.

Make sure you have excellent lugs on your shoes especially in wet conditions. In fact, I would deem this trail very hazardous when wet. You have to do some rock hopping (slippery when wet) and the ground gets muddy very quickly from rain.

The trail bends around the east side of the mountain and is well covered with trees. So, it's nice to do even in the heat of the summer evenings. We started at 4 PM. We saw lots of wildlife including a deer. My son had a bunch of tinny ticks on him by the end. I must not have used enough spray on him.
