Good for beginners to advanced. Dog walkers, runners are all welcome. Except please pick up after your dog! Many times I see it right on there trail. It does need to be better marked. But overall a beautiful trail among the trees.

Nice hike. No big views but nice trail thru the woods. I will say the trails are not particularly well marked and the map doesn’t reflect all the intersections you’ll come across.

A friend of mine had her car window smashed and purse stole from under her seat last week in the parking lot. Be careful

I love the versatility of this trail. I live in the area so I know of short cuts when I don’t have a lot of time. There have been many bear sightings of recent, so be aware.

Not a big fan urban hikes. To many roads not enough woods and mountains

how beautiful

Overhead canopy kept us cool on a warm summer day. Missed a turn and added an extra mile to our hike. Best to keep an eye on gps. Nice hike.

An easy trail to hike or trail run. It's easy to hike it as a long or short loop.

not a bad trail but not well marked there easy 2.8 mile loop turned into a 7 mile up and down mountain sides....

Love this short but sweet trail! Not too rigorous but enough to give you a good workout. I'm glad that dogs are allowed and all of the ones I have encountered were very well behaved however I do wish that the owners would clean up their dog poop that's left right in the middle of the trail! I don't want that in my hiking boot treads!

Took my two dogs running. Total loop is 5.4 miles. Awesome trail. First time on it and very scenic. Ran in October when the leaves were starting to change. Easy red markers to follow.

Pretty trail! The whole loop is 5.4 miles. Lots of flowers and pretty scenery along the trail. Easy and feels like your a lot further out of town than you are.

The entrance to the Chestnut Ridge Loop Trail is located at MP 120.5 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Take the Mill Mountain Parkway for about a mile and parking for the trail is on the right. Bathrooms are available at the Mill Mountain Visitor's center at the top of Mill Mountain. This trail is a local favorite for trail running.
