What seemed like forever to get to the top was well worth it! Easy well groomed walkway.

Nice hike on a beautiful Wednesday. We saw the bridge across Boone Forks a few weeks back so decided to try coming at the falls by a different route. Took Rich Mountain trail to the MST down to Hebron Falls. Nice hike but all uphill on the way back. Makes for a good workout

Nice trail to run.

Flat. It’s a perfect place for strollers. There’s a cool water pool at one side of the lake. There’s several species of water fowl here.

I walk this every chance I get! So relaxing!

Easy going. Great loop

Nice wide graveled trails with changes in scenery. Mostly wooded but some nice open pastures. Great lunch spot at the top on a stone wall with 360 degree view. Regularly used by horses but easy to step around the horse biscuits. Nice gentle consistent incline; almost an easy trail but not quite. Park crews were actively clearing deadfall from recent snowstorms right at the top when we were there.

Very nice hike - nice view from the Cone Manor, but most of the trail is a great walk through the woods and around the lake. We didn't know the trail as well as most - and since the trail really isn't marked clearly - it's easy to cut out the "maze" section of the hike and go up to the "apple barn".

If you want a nice stretch of the legs on a non- strenuous trail, this is it! A nice change from steep, rocky trails. Very peaceful and pretty. Plenty of water along the way for dogs. Not sure if the little streams dry up in the summer, or not. I walked it while leaves were still off the trees so was able to see the surrounding mountain tops. Very nice!

Lovely, easy hike on wide, smooth trails. Gorgeous views at Cone Manor. NC

Really enjoy this trail. Pretty easy walk uphill to get out to the observation tower. Have done this trail twice. The first time we got up there just as the clouds rolled in and blocked out everything. The second time there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. Breathtaking. Really cool view down on to the Blowing Rock to the south and Boone to the north. Highly recommend if you have a couple hours to spend.

one of my faves...be sure to. check out Deer loop trail which veers off left from Rich Mtb loop...nice bald area to hang out and watch wildlife.

Nice easy trail.

Easy wide trails. Rewarding view at the fire tower.

Fun little jaunt! Found lots of cool stuff to eat along the way such as clover, crab apples, berries- easy-breezy quiet and enjoyable!

Very easy walk, lots of chipmunks along the way to watch. Great view from the fire tower up top!

Nice trail

Emphasis on carriage trail, and if a two-lane, easy walk in the woods with gentle ascent is what you are looking for...this is for you. Heavy horse traffic near the lake. More time may be spent looking down to avoid horse dung than up at the foliage or view. Busy enough to discourage birding.

Easy hike, great views at the end if you climb the tower.

I find the trail extremely boring and easy. It's basically a gravel hiking trail that winds up and down hills. I will say it is an excellent trail to run.

Great walk/hike today!

Great gravel trail through fields and covered paths. Beautiful view from the tower! Lots of shortcuts can take over a mile off the hike.

Nice small lake, but not easy to find and getting next to the water is only possible in few places. Some part of the hike is on the road actually. The Bass lake is much nicer in my opinion.
