Well maintained trail. Well worth the effort.

Nice easy climb! Take appropriate shoes! Trail gets muddy towards the top.

The drive up the mountain to the Trailhead is more difficult than the actual hike . The view at the end is great!

absolutely beautiful trail! Very narrow trail and fairly steep switch backs so would not recommend for a young inexperienced hiker. the view at the top (fire tower) was stunning! highly recommend this trail for a day hike. took roughly 2 hours to summit at a slow to moderate pace. lastly the lesser creek trail is marked by blue blazes and end and pick up the white AT blazes. stay to the left to summit.

Fantastic waterfall that is easy to get to (just a one-mile loop with slight incline). Perfect for family.

This is a fun, challenging trail that follows a stream for a majority of the hike and features beautiful views and a climeable tower at the end. I believe the listed distance of 5.9 miles is wrong, as another user mentioned, and is actually about twice that length round trip. The hike took our group about 3 hours up and 2 hours back at a moderate pace.

Nice walk in the woods but not very scenic. Not a loop!

I have done this hike numerous times and enjoy it very much! You need to pay to park so bring some cash. We do the trek clockwise. Stay to the left for a fairly steep incline going up on a gravel path then stunning views as you trek along the top of the mountain. I'm in my 50's and in decent shape but definitely gets my heart rate up! Lots of steps and some tricky descents on the way down but my trusty hiking stick comes in handy to stabilize. The entire hike takes about 1 1/4 hour unless you linger at the top. I always take water and am amazed how many people don't!
