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.

Did this in conjunction with Little Devils Stairs, overall it was a good trail for an extra workout, but the views were nothing you couldn't get from Skyline drive and the trail was fairly crowded on a weekday. Good trail if you're just looking to get out for something short and to get your heart pumping, but nothing special.

So much fun!! I plan on coming back. Always ppl on the trail with you and it often got blocked up on the more difficult parts. I found the climbing was easy but I noticed shorter people struggled a little more. Having a partner can really help with the climbing.

HikingGreat!

hit this one on a misting and foggy day, couldn't see a dang thing at the top but it was still worth it, since it was a short hike. it was actually kinda nice at the top. probably even better on a clear day

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.

Beautiful hike but slow going. It was extremely crowded this weekend so go early but it is very slick with all the rain. Take your time if you do go but I'd hold off for a dryer day this week. It is steep coming back up but I found up to be easier going than down due to the slick rocks.

This would be a great trail if it wasn't so crowded. we went later in the day and all of the waterfalls were crowded, we couldn't get any good pictures. the start of the hike is all down hill and pretty easy except the occasional big steps down. the hike up the hill was pretty brutal, but with a few short breaks on the way made it manageable. on a hot day I would recommend taking at least 2 liters of water. this trail would probably be less crowded in the fall when people aren't hiking down to the swimming holes.

I hiked this a few weeks ago...the views were magnificent but the trail was super crowded with people forming lines on some of the key scrambles. Those rock scrambles were hard core and All Trails rated this as hard and it was definitely one of my hardest hikes to date due to the rock scrambling. Get to the parking lot by 7:30 a.m. on weekends during the summer!

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!

HikingGreat!

Parked at the little stony man parking lot. After the first 0.3 miles or so, we turned left (clockwise) on the white trail (Appalachian trail). The lookouts were wonderful on a clear day. Keep in mind that pets are not allowed on the trail spur leading to the stony man point lookout. We continued on the white and blue trail past this junction and turned right on the yellow trail to complete the loop. Moderately busy on a Sunday afternoon with most people without masks but practicing social distancing.

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.

Bushwhacked under the telephone pole line to start (lots of fresh blackberries) then leveled out on Matthews Arm “trace” and traversed the Mt Knob trail, dropped down to Jeremy’s Run and up to the AT, crossing Skyline Drive and back to Piney Run finishing at Redbird Camp CCC.

very nice scenic trail. we did it clockwise which was very nice because the scenery was all on the tail end of the trail. mostly downhill the first half and then all up hill the second half. great sights and beautiful waterfall.

HikingGreat!

Great trail but the route we took was not exactly the same. This is what we recommend. Start at conference center parking lot and do not take nature trail. Jump on AT at far end of parking lot and go left. Just before you get to street there is a trail marker and you should take a right there. Follow that around until you get back to AT and make a right onto trail. Follow AT until the Stony Mountain short loop hike and make right following blue markers. When done with overlook, take the yellow trail which will meander into the AT and hang a right. Parking lot is about 200 yards on your left.
