Nice relaxing trail, with some nice lookout's.

Starts out a rocky trail, but leads into a decent trail, with gradual inclines and declines...you come across a few trails and access roads along the way.
The overlook is worth the hike.
Note: If you cross the road you can see the other part of the AT its worth the short walk to another overlook of the valley.

did this by myself and its a pretty easy trail. that said rocks are everywhere and you should have some purpose made shoes/boots for trails. the camp sight is nice but kind of small and there isnt much in the way of firewood. over all though it was great and would do it again.

I’m getting older! This was tougher than it should Have been for me and my girlfriend. It was a very good hike the view is spectacular very rocky make sure to wear boots we were both wearing just normal sneakers it is a very extremely rocky section of the trail.

My Husband and I did this hike on a beautiful September day. We enjoyed hiking through the woods and it took us about an hour and a half to get to Round Head Lookout. Very few people on the trail - nice and quiet. We will be back here once the color starts to peak a bit more!

We did a short hike in(about 4 miles) from 183 to hertlein campsite, spent the night and hiked back out. it was really muddy and swampy from the flash flood 2 days ago. and its definitely rocky but still a nice hike and good for amateurs like us. The campsite was nice and theres a old dam they use as a watering hole. We'll do it again!

We left one car at either end and did a nice 4 hour hike. The was a lot of water on the trail for about a mile on the 183 end. It was about 85° but there was plenty of shade from the forest.

Not a review...looking for insight.
Me and my husband are planning on backpacking this trail overnight in early August. Are there any considerations that I should be aware of in terms of camping and parking?
Do I need to reserve a campsite?
Is my car ok overnight in the parking lot at Rt 183
