Gets the heart rate up and offers a good workout with both loops. Great view, worth the climb!

Challenging but doable hike. Easy trail to a view at the top!

Nice!!! Big trees and a lot of rock formations. Needs to be marked better

First time hiking this trail, and we really enjoyed it. I recommend a route straight up Old Mill Hollow Road, and then taking the first (southernmost) turn onto the Jacob's Ladder Trail (orange blazes), returning to the mail trail (Old Mill Hollow) and immediately taking the southern trailhead for the Christmas Rocks trail. It'll return you to the central trail having done both the side loops, and this gets the (rather big and steep) hills over with quickly, letting the second half of the hike relax you into a mostly-downhill walk around the Christmas Rocks trail and back to the start. Trail is well marked and easy to follow, but in parts is pretty darn steep - if you're going soon after rains when the ground is damp, bring poles or you're likely to lose footing on some of the downslopes.

Very peaceful, amazing view. I got a great workout. I can't wait to go back.

Nice view worth seeing, but the rest of the trail can be somewhat uneventful.

Nice hike. The out is pretty simple but it gets fun on the loops back. The best view is on the orange section. Marked well except one place pink markers showed up. I thought they were faded orange markers for the orange trail. Veered off course for a half mile or so. Retraced and got back on the blue trail. Just a warning. Ran about 1/2 and walked the other half. Great workout!
