I think this should be rated hard it has a lot of inclines and at the top it gets pretty hairy

Love this hike

Great local trail without having to drive too far. Located at the back of a neighborhood, the main trail takes you up to the buzzards rock for an okay view. The hike is a good one - the view, not so much... 5 stars for hike...2 stars for view

Challenging home for my boys and myself. Great day too go, but man are we tired.

Enjoyable short hike, nice view of the valley from the top.

Beautiful trail with rock climbing and straight up most of the time. The path is small and a true hiking experience. The view at the top is breathtaking!!!!

Beautiful views at top

First time out and loved it! Great fall or winter hike. Wonderful, rocky trail. Not too crowded. Extra star for being 10 min from the house! :D

I did this trail by myself yesterday. It was truly wonderful. I went early and had the place almost to myself. Lots of squirrels and deer. Lots of large boulders to look at along with beautiful plant life. The hike itself was great and I loved it. I wish some of that overlooks would’ve had better views. Too much overgrowth. When you get to the top it was really nice! I would definitely do this one again!

A great hike with good views but limited by forest branches. Execllent markings.
Some trials need some maintenance.
Still a great hike.

Great trail to plan at the last minute! Would consider this trail easy to moderate. Very dog friendly. Some good views along the way! Would rate this trail as a seven only because the view at the top is limited due to overgrown trees.

Read Mountain is a newer county park in Roanoke area. Great short hike with views of Roanoke valley at the top. Can be combined with two other options for hike closer to 5 miles. Small parking lot, picnic tables and porta-jon (which was extremely clean the day we were there).
