HikingGreat!

One of my favorite hikes so far! Great views on the way up, lots of shade, and beautiful overlook at the top. Not too strenuous, and very fun! We did run into a mother black bear and two cubs about 25ft away, but they turned around and went the other way. Keep your eye out.

Visited the park about a year ago. Forgot to add this one to the list. Nice hike to a waterfall.

HikingGreat!

We loved this trail. It is an easy trail that ends with a moderate scramble that our 8 year old could accomplish with no issues. The views are gorgeous and the trail is well maintained. We connected from this trail to the Jones Falls trail and ended up hiking almost ten miles total, but because the trails are moderate our 8 year old had no problem doing the hike. The Falls are beautiful but make sure you go all the way down for the full majestic view. Watch out for snakes! We encountered two snakes and a black bear on the trail. Also the trails were heavily trafficked so make sure you have a mask handy as some sections are narrow.

HikingScramble

What a trail! I combined this with the sugarloaf loop and it came out to about 12 miles and 2500 elevation. The initial ascent through little devils stairs was tough, but breathtaking. I would not recommend doing this trail in reverse, the fire trail is deceptively steep and going down the devil's stairs would be worse than going up. On the topic of the fire road... it's very monotonous, steep and boring, but the cemetery is a cool bonus, definitely go in and read Why are the Mountains Blue. Definitely on the harder side of moderate, and good ankle support and grip on boots are a MUST.

I hiked this today and was blown away by the amazing views for a true moderate hike. I parked at the overlook on Skyline Drive and went counterclockwise on the lollipop loop (All Trails goes clockwise)...and I would definitely do it this way again! The first half of the hike included the ridgeline and best views, which I appreciated more when I was still fresh and before it got super hot. It also gave me a steep descent and gradual ascent. I didn't see any wildlife of note, and only 3 people the entire time (all going clockwise). The trail itself was nice, a little overgrown in a few places and a little rocky on short stretches,, but most of it was dirt, lined with moss, and minimal rocks and roots. Several stream crossings but easily navigable. Definitely one of my favorite hikes!

This is probably the hardest hike I’ve done since moving here. It’s quite literally 2300ft straight up and then 2300ft straight down. Surprisingly, going down to as the hardest part. At times the trail was hard to follow. Definitely went off trail a bunch both purposefully and unintentionally. All in all I loved this hike. It pushed me. Make sure to pack extra water, as this was the first time I ran out in a long time. Also, start early.

HikingGreat!Rocky

A great 5.5 mi hike when you do the whole loop and the out and back to the waterfall. We were a group of 6 with two septuagenarians, a 7 yo and 10 yo. Took us 3 hours of moving time (2.1 mph). Probably more like 5 either stops. The other reviews saying the hike to the bottom of the waterfall being well worth it were totally true. I’d go so far as to say that the hike isn’t really worth it without the stop to the bottom of the waterfall. We got lucky and we’re the only ones there for 30 mins. But then two big groups came and it took the magic (and safety—covid) away so we left happy that we’d had so much time to ourselves. We preferred going CCW because the other half of the loop, while uphill and slightly longer, was less rocky for our tired legs. One note, our GPS had significantly longer mileage than what’s posted here and on the trail markers. So be conservative in your estimates.

Great trail, the waterfalls (especially the second one) can be a little tricky to access so you’ll definitely want your good hiking shoes. Uphill all the way back out so excellent for cardio and there’s an overlook maybe 200ft from the parking lot for the perfect post-hike view. Side note: This may be a seasonal attribute, but the rocks and trees near the water were absolutely COATED in millipedes I don’t recall seeing in March. So if you have a bug-sensitive hiking buddy you might want to consider another trail.

Nice little run with some light rock climbing and plenty of steam crossings, a bonus early 1900s cemetery and lots of canopy. It is a good trail for a bit day with plenty of share and light breezes.

HikingGreat!Rocky

If you do this hike clockwise you won’t hit any water untill you get down to the river, 8.5 miles in, over steep and rocky terrain. We did it counterclockwise and so had the benefit of the river for cooling off and drinking for the first part of the trip. I am not an experienced hiker so I found the length and terrain to be really difficult. We were in over our heads for sure but we are glad we accomplished it. We hiked 4.5 miles day 1, 7 miles day 2, and 5.5 on day 3. Knowing what I know now I would probably like a 12 mile hike over 3 days so that I’m not too exhausted at the end of the day to enjoy the camping part. We had the capacity to carry 3 quarts of water per person and it was barely enough from our last fill up to the end of the hike. A gallon per person would have been much more comfortable. There is no water on the AT part of the trail. You can fill up at the black rock hut about 1 mile or so off the loop further north on the AT but at our pace that would have added at least 2 hours of hard labor to the hike so we decided to make what we had last till we got back to the car. We did this during July so it was hot and sweaty. The river was nice with a few shallow swimming holes, good to cool off in but not deep enough to jump in and swim around. There are several river crossings but at this time of year the water is low enough and we never even got our feet wet. We spent 2 nights hammock camping which was easier than tent camping as there seemed to be very few flat areas to pitch a tent. The trail is well signed and maintained.

HikingGreat!

Started at Jones run parking lot Went clockwise on this trail. Easy and downhill to the 2 Doyle river falls and then some uphill going into Jones run falls. Final section is somewhat steep. Total of 4 hour hike with kids and dog. Moderate traffic on a Saturday

great hike with great views of the falls. we also added dark hallow falls which was amazing worth the .2 mile detour.

Highly recommended! Completed this hike on a cool June day. We began to the right, which serves as a wide rocky road, down the hill. The highlights are the two waterfalls- the Dark Hallows Falls and Rose River Falls, and an extended period where the trails runs parallel to the river, with dozens of small waterfalls and beautiful views. It is longer than listed- around 4.5 miles.

Loved this trail. Nice reward at the top of a mostly moderate trail. That last 10-15% could be considered intense. It’s well shaded and follows a creek for the first +/- 30% - as mentioned by many. I just enjoyed the stroll (until some yellow jackets got into my leg) and quick dip in the stream. That swimming hole did fill up as it got later in the day.
