I took the red trail to orange at the first homestead and followed that to the overlook. Beautiful view! Pro-tip: post a Hammock under the over look for instant zen points! I took blue on the way back and stopped by the waterfall and the second homestead. Beautiful hike.
Wow what a refreshing trail!
I would like to meet the reviewer that labeled this as moderate.
This trail can sway to the moderate/strenuous difficulty in my judgement.
Very well marked, many stopping points, and many information plaques all along the trails.

this is a great place for pics if you know what you wanting to shoot. has a great veiw up top, with a gazebo. also a few homestead markers.
A well marked and managed trail. Had an enjoyable run on the trail- enough elevation to get the heart rate up but so much elevation that the trail was over strenuous. Certain parts of the trail were scenic- the view and the creek with a waterfall was nice. I will be running this trail again the next time I am in Hickory.
