Still closed- this as well as the pleasant green access trail / parking

Exploratory trail near West Point on the eno. Very packed this holiday weekend, glad we started somewhat early.

Great trail for kids. They spotted different mushrooms, loved the bridge, and relaxed in the water. Fun times especially during COVID19.

Nice trail, very well marked with signs and blazes. Quiet after you get past the first bit, and well maintained throughout. You're not near water for most of it which is a bummer, but there is one fun river crossing (very easy and did not get wet at all). There are several ways you could link this together with other loops to increase your elevation gain or make it a longer route. Also, you start and end at a nice swimming area if that is of interest! Gave four stars because there's nothing wrong with it, I just didn't LOVE it but for elevation gain it's one of the best bang for your buck in this area without driving far.

solid hike - little rocky from time to time, but nothing crazy.

This trail was great for a nice peaceful short nature walk. Took my dog and we just enjoyed how beautiful and peaceful it was. Well kept and clearly marked trail, moderately trafficked.

Great trail, well marked with a few places to get your feet wet. Turtles galore! Will do again

Nice little trail that we hiked along with the other connected trails. Some campsite connections along the way as well.

This was an excellent, quick-ish trail that follows the river! Saw multiple turtles!

Stunning moments around every corner, great for beginning hikers. Short but provides incredible sunsets views and several spots that would be great to stop and eat lunch. Going at golden hour was gorgeous!

A trio of us went early this morning (6/7/20) and parked at the buckquarter access and took the right/counterclockwise on both splits of the trails(buckquarter and Holden Mill). At the start it is a (like another reviewer stated) uphill climb that tests endurance. Fairly level beside the river until we got to a very rocky area of the trail after passing the hill the second time. They were steep in some areas, so bring the right shoes! Felt like a mountain goat in some places, but one of the giant hillside boulders had a small bright blue flower and stunning views of the river. All three of us enjoyed the trail especially since we started early, meaning less people and lower temperatures. Toward the end of the hike, met a lot more people and the river was starting to get a little packed. We saw several different interesting plants and animals; including a baby copperhead, trumpet flowers and sunning turtles. I would recommend getting there early since parking becomes somewhat tricky the later it gets.

The trail has no bridge and you need to cross the river which has like 1 ft water .. we took an alternative route while goin back which has a suspension bridge which was pretty cool!

This was a great hike. Beautiful walk along the river with several historical sites along the way. Trail in good condition and in 8 miles only saw 8-10 people on a Friday morning.

A great trail! However, come to find out, it is still closed as the rangers let me know.

Great trail to get a mix of settings. If you take it counter-clockwise you get to go through the woods to the hole outlook and then walk along the river on the way back. Lots of people taking inner tubes and dogs down to the water. Some muddy/rooted parts but overall easy to follow. 2 mi loop was the right distance for a morning walk.

Great trail. Started at buck quarter. Followed to Holdens trail. Very rocky at some points. Wouldn’t recommend for small children. Gorgeous views.

Very wet humid day. Rained on the way to the trail head. I was told by a park ranger this was the trail to go to for lots of wild flower growth. Did not see a single wildflower. The hike was nice but a bit of a let down because I was expecting wildflowers.

Beautiful trail. The Buckquarter loop access is really crowded on a warm spring day. If you want to come on warm day and set up hammock, swim etc. I would set it up on the Holdens Mill loop as much quieter and less crowded. The uphill side of the Holdens Mill loop has a long steady uphill climb when you gain about 300 ft in elevation over 0.5 mile stretch. Definitely moderate hike. Several climbs over rocky outcrops on the river side of this loop, but well marked and manageable for moderate hike. Some laurels were in bloom along the trail giving some spectacular views
