A little muddy and slippery after our rain last night, but we really enjoyed this trail. We are not experienced hikers, so the elevation gains were a little tricky for us- but I would do it again in a heartbeat! Beautiful forestry, rocks and moss, the small creek at the bottom is a really nice treat. The Kiln itself is really breathtaking.

I hiked this loop on 6/14/17. Decent trail conditions but rocky. Google maps directed me to enter Rockwood from Hwy 109. The road is under construction right now and you cannot access the park. You will need to enter the park from the north side (head west on Manchester and turn left on Glencoe Rd.)

nice trails, even on hot day the tree tops kept it nice and cool

Definitely challenging with elevation gains. We ended up veering off Lime Kiln to take Trail Among The Trees and then to Rock Quarry and back again. Both are pretty scenic, though Lime Kiln is more challenging. Would visit again. Lots of downed and dead trees in some spots, with just a few parts of the trail blocked by such (but still navigable). Part of a bridge is out on Trail Among the Trees so there is a detour around it, though we ended up going that way anyway and climbing up the side. We went on a week day and there was little to no other hikers there.

one of my favorites. beautiful views.

Great fun with the family. Steep hills for little ones.
