My wife and I hiked this trail on Saturday and it was a good morning hike. We saw numerous others on the trail and enjoyed the overlook. Overall easy hiking and a nice quick hike

Did anyone mention that your feet will really be sore after walking over stones and roots for 7 miles? It would be really helpful to have some markings besides a splash of yellow paint on the occasional tree. How about some markings that tell you how many more miles till the end? More directional markers would make this a better hike. What is the difference between the upper and the lower loop?

This trail is quiet and peaceful. Narrow at times, but there we passed only a handful of other pairs and families along the way on Memorial Day morning. While there are some scenic overlooks at the trail head, there aren’t any along the trail. It’s very shady.

The trail is moderate, elevation gets your blood moving and the shade give relief from a hot sun. Both narrow and wide trail area with rocky terrain that may be slippery in rain. A nice quick trail for an escape in the woods.

This trail has a lot of ascending and descending parts to it. It’s very rock with some tight spots outside of maybe working a little harder this is a great trail.

Rocky and feels like you're going uphill most of the time. For such a short hike it's a nice little workout. Great scenic view spots. Crowded on a weekend since many people drive up just for the views.

Great little hike combined with the green trail from the nature center. Great for kids with only a little elevation change and fun rocks along the way.

I’d say this trail is on the easy end of moderate, however not one of my favorite trails. I didn’t find it particularly beautiful. Maybe one or 2 spots and I’m sure when the ferns open fully it will add to the beauty but for 8 miles a lot of which follows a road that gets regular traffic doesn’t do it for me. I like to feel like I’m in the middle of nowhere and I didn’t feel this way on the lower yellow trail and didn’t feel this way much on the upper yellow trail. It’s also very rocky, but we did it with a kid on our back so it’s doable, but watch your footing.

Long trail which didn’t have a particular destination so it was kind of boring in a sense. First bit of trail hugs the side of the road which made it feel like weren’t really hiking.

This was a nice hike on a Sunday morning, but definitely got more crowded as it got later. We went counter-clockwise from the lower parking area and had one relatively moderate section before reaching the gorgeous views near the Tea House.

nice relaxing hike with good amount of elevation and options to choose longer or shorter loops.

Very pretty trail that provides a ton of shade and a nice escape. Time it late in the afternoon with few people around and enjoy the green fields scattered with flowers and towering trees. It’s very short but is worth it.

Mostly fire road, and lots of rocks. This is not a technical trail, but does have a lot of elevation so it’s good for a workout.

Definitely a stomping ground of mine. Get it? Great hike, can be adjusted to what you like.
