Basically half of it was like walking down or up a gravel road. A lot of climb in elevation without a view from the top.

Very primitive trail. Be prepared to climb over and under downed trees, walk through streams, walk narrow (slippery at time) trails, and it's all uphill. Definitely a pretty difficult but awesome hike. Great views at the end.

Nice moderate climb. Some areas of the trail felt like you were going through tunnels because of the mountain laurels. There was also a cool tree growing on a rock that's worth seeing near the top.

It was ok. Easy hike. No one else on trail. Not too interesting.

Awesome and beautiful. Keep your dogs leashed as the drop offs are steep.

This is a beautiful waterfall The hike down to the platform is awesome everyone should go see this at least once in their lifetime

This was a great adventure to remember

Great trail if you're looking for a relatively challenging day hike. The trek from the road to the bald is almost completely uphill, with some flatter areas about half way. There are multiple places to filter water and camping spots where the Bartram Trail intersects if you're not up for doing this in one day. The only downside to this trail is that there are very few views on the way up. An alternative to the route posted is driving up to the bald, hiking down and crossing Wayah Rd, and going to Silers Bald (the offshoot a couple miles after the road crossing). It's a great spot that offers 360 views and a nice camping spot.
