Camped out at Elizabeth Furnace family campground for one night after hiked up the ridge on this blue/orange blazed trail. It took some trying to locate the trailhead around the large picnic parking lot (drive cross the bridge). After the trailhead the rest of the trail is well marked, all the way up to the ridge, just a little over 2 miles in distance 1000 ft in elevation gain. Once there, if you can, highly recommend taking a left turn onto Buzzard Rocks trail. That is where the good views are.

Beautiful falls and decent trail. Perfect for kids 5+, but a little tough for my 3 year old.

Excellent trail...there is virtually no water supply with the exception of of a nasty pond on the last leg of the trail. Thanks to the Guardian water purifier I enjoyed 4 liters of the best tasting "pond scum" ever!!!

Jaw dropping beauty from the time you leave the parking lot!
Great switchback trail with great sights all the way to the top.
There are lots of stairs in the beginning which is a challenge for me but was worth every step!
