The Shut-In Trail is actually about 17 miles long. It runs from the trail head shown on the map near the Arboretum by Bent Creek to the Mt. Pisgah parking lot. Today we did an out and back starting at the Mt. Pisgah end going about 5 miles before returning. We had over 2,500 feet of elevation change just in this section. It definitely has some steep and rocky parts but is a great hike. There are great views this time of year without the leaves on the trees and not as much traffic as earlier in the year. If you are looking for a heart pumper this is a good choice.

tough hike but a great one..we live here and love going on this hike with our trail hound!

Excellent little trail with a variety of alternative trails that connect to this one. Most of these trails allow mountain biking so if you are planning to hike this area be ready to deal with the bikers. I did notice a couple of the trails are dedicated to hiking only, this is not one.

Wonderful scenery, great for dogs, some bikers, great parking area

Beautiful trails up to Ingles field. This was and will be a repeat Trail for me.

Nice trail. GPS didn't take us to trail head so took some time to find. Only 400 yards away but once we found it the trail was fun.
