Okay trail. Some places are almost impassable due to trail riding.

today was a muddy day on the trail! it was actually raining through most of the hike which I surprisingly enjoyed a lot! i took the short-cut loop which ended my hike around 4 miles. overall, a very nice trail & nice scenery.

No joke of a trail that’s for sure! Nice though but not much in the way of views.

Good little trail for a pretty easy walk. Only two real inclines - that aren’t too bad. Rating 3 stars due to it being slightly overgrown, pretty muddy and just not too exciting of a hike.

Very muddy, at least three places with downed trees, so you go over or under, lots of creek crossings but not deep, no horse traffic due to downed trees, I enjoyed the abundance of birds, ferns, wildflowers, but the heavy rain had blown over all the nice big mushrooms and also made a lot of the trail muddy, but I enjoyed it.

Wonderful! The reviews are accurate about the first hill being intense—after that, it levels off a bit but stays consistently changing so it’s never boring. A lot of little streams that are beautiful, and only a few declines that are “tough” (but still doable). I wouldn’t suggest taking little children just because of how steep it can get and how narrow the path is (definitely a lot of areas that are One Person Only).

Alltrails says 5.5 but really 6.5 miles. few down trails. lots and lots of mud spots to go thru. like sink down into mud muddy spots. had to go off trail a few times to get around down trees and muddy holes. beautiful views. smalls up and down hills. saw a few deer. only passed a few other hikes

Excellent excellent running trail. Recommend going earlier — I saw about five people. It’s impossible to get lost. Superb moderate course. And yes, be prepared to get muddy!!

Loved this trail. Trees and sunshine and challenging terrain.

A great “go as far as you want and come back trail”. Once you take the initial climb you are on the ridge line for a ways. Park in the Scotts Gap Loop parking area. It is across the street from that.

My favorite hike in the Louisville area. Starts off with a pretty massive uphill that will hey you going. Lots of variation and things to see. Check to see if it is closed before going out though. I believe I read that they were working on an extension and it is temporarily shut down.

Whew! This one will make you weak in the knees!! Lots of steep inclines and ledges with 2-4 feet of trail. We parked at the welcome center and walked over to Stiltstone Trail. There is a nice creek side bench and shelter about 2 miles in that links to the Tulip Tree Trail and Tom Wallace pond, good spot to rest and have a snack. Purple Heart Trail was pretty rugged as well. Not much to see but pretty private and a good challenge with 3 little creek crossings.

Nice hike in the woods. Relatively flat. Good trail but still a few muddy spots in early May.

Moderate is an under statement. these hills are brutal. beautiful trail. extremely hard to pass people on narrow paths with big up hill/down hill on both sides on some parts. TOO MANY PEOPLE WITH DOGS NOT ON LEASHES

Great trail for a moderate challenging hike.

I enjoyed this trail, it was nice and scenic. It is moderate level and has many incline and decline throughout. The trail fits one person at a time for the most part, you won’t be able to walk side by side if you go with someone.

Beautiful hike through the forest. You’ll cross countless little streams and it’s a very serene vibe. You won’t encounter many spectacular vistas as it’s pretty much a blanket of trees and greenery. I agree with those who said this will be on the difficult-side for anyone new to hiking. Some steep inclines and declines, and rocky. It can get pretty muddy after it rains. Definitely worth a visit.

Good moderate trail. Easy to follow path. I stopped about an hour into trail to make it back home for Live at 5 with Andy. I'll have to grab my son and do the whole trail.

Probably the prettiest area of Jefferson Memorial I have hiked. A really nice loop if you include the McConnell trail. All the horse traffic has taken it’s toll on parts. If you go around a wet time better have good boots on because it can be really hard to slosh through all the mud without them.
