Split this trail into two days and camped overnight. The only campsites I saw were by the river between miles 3-4. The trail is very rocky and you must cross the river several times (expect to get wet). The best view is around the 7 mile mark, but don’t expect anything great. It is basically the same view you can get from the car. Although I’ve seen some reviews finishing the trail in 4-6 hours, this took us 10 hours.

HikingGreat!

Bring a lunch, it’s great to chill and snack down by the falls before making the climb back out. Such an awesome hike, my husband and I brought both of our dogs who loved getting to swim around for a bit.

Hiked 080920. Once you have gone to bridge you can see biggest falls. Unless you want to do entire loop. scenery is very similar past bridge. Good cardio workout. Slippery in places. Take time traversing rocks n roots.

This was a beautiful, strenuous day. It’s a continuously rewarding day with waterfalls everywhere and very cool bugs. We also saw toads and snakes! We were in the meadow part of the trail at dusk so did a lot of clapping as not to meet bears. If you do the entire 12 mile loop, it should take you 7 hours with a 30-45 min stop for lunch. Pack a lunch and packable towel at the very least to take a dip in one of the many pools! You’ll be sad if you don’t!!! 4.5 liters of water was JUST enough for two people. Make sure you have more in the car! The climb will seriously leave you drenched. And be sure to have your first aid out on the trail. It’s slippery and precarious and we didn’t fall but I was GLAD I had it. We also brought 2 extra pairs of socks for this one because of all the stream crossings. We opted for stable rocks in the water instead of loose, dry ones and tree trunks. It’s a very hard trail, I recommend going counterclockwise starting at hawbills gap parking. Download the map because there are a couple turns you don’t want to miss! Again this trail is no joke, it kicked our butts. But we had a lot of fun.

Had a great experience with kids 11, 9 and 6. We hike a fair bit and they prefer rocks to climb making this perfect. We went clockwise, spent time in the water along the way, and added the Hollow Falls before heading back on the Fire Road. Lots of hikers so some delays while passing with social distancing. Following the water made for great views and fun exploring and picnics.

Fun trail. Zig zags over and through a stream at times. So really slippery and wet. I would wear swim trunks, the swimming hole is very cool. I brought my dog. He loves the water so jumped in the stream all he could. One thing with a dog is the trail is super narrow a lot. So hard to get out of other dog and people’s way most of the time. This is a hard trail. Lots of endless uphill it seems.

We went to Old Rag this weekend and started the hike from the overflow lot at 9:30 am. From the trailhead - it is ~4 miles to the peak. The real fun starts around 2.75 miles at the rock scramble. By the time we got to this part, it was crowded and we waited in lines for people to maneuver through the cracks and bolders. This hike would have received a 5 stars if it weren't so crowded (remember to bring a mask). The hike down was rocky but not too strenuous. As others said, the revised path towards the car part is at times uphill/discouraging. We were back at the car by 3.

We loved this hike! It was a pretty gentle slope going in and out. The waterfall mid hike was a nice one, and there are a few River crossings. Not too rocky or muddy. The payoff was decent - the historical cabins where former President vacationed.

Very rocky trail. There are much more cool features in the second half of the hike. There are creek crossings and a lot of uphill so be prepared. Overall, very pretty!

Very very crowded, not everyone is wearing a mask. Might not be the best idea during covid, but the waterfalls were nice. Lots of little kids playing in the water and blocking trails so be careful!
