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.

Great Trail! The incline is a little steep on the way up. Beautiful views. My 10 year old did it easily. Start early in the morning or later in the evening. Mid-days are crowded.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
