Great trail, was a nice moderate trail for sure, rocky scramble, crossing multiple little creeks, a few good hard climbs at times, it comes in at a flat 5 miles for me. It was muddy in places and all of the ground was slippy due to all the rain that's been in the area, very peaceful trail, runs besides a little of water, from a river to small streams and brooks. Easy at times, strenuous here and there. The view at the overlook is not too bad, they could remove a few strategic trees and give a spectacular view.

The trail hugs a creek for the first half or so before ascending into a pine forest. Really lovely, not too difficult for a novice who won’t be deterred by a few steep stretches.

HikingGreat!

Agree on not a trail for children as the narrow edges along creek and ravines are not for the faint of heart. Very good set up for a stroll or a vigorous day of hiking. Marked well and drained well as the rain 24 hours earlier left very few muddy spots. Great views and assorted trail features. Very much worth the drive to experience.

Trail is in good shape, well marked, and maintained. There are a couple of muddy areas and some blowdowns, but all is easy to navigate.

HikingGreat!Rocky

I loved here because there's either a river or creek right next to your trail most of the time. There's 2-3 steep inclines/declines but nothing a novice hiker or dogs can't do! My two dogs (border collie and maltipoo) both loved the 3 hr hike and did amazing. Trail markers are frequent, easy to follow, except one or two points (mid-trail and later 3rd of the trail). When I was confused, I just went back to the previous marker to make sure I was on the correct path. When it's less frequent, I just made sure to stay on the pathway and eventually the next mark showed. Just gotta stay awake :) Definitely will go back!

I got to a point where the trail was not well marked and I couldn’t find the next trail marker so I turned around. Otherwise well kept and beautiful

HikingGreat!

This area nestled about a part of secluded Lake Martin is a gem. It’s full of bluffs, pines, and quartz. Yes, it’s on the difficult side of moderate. You might say it’s up hill both ways. Great well-marked trail for us and our Shepherd; very few other hikers today.

HikingGreat!

The trail was beautiful!!! But I would definitely rate it more challenging than "moderate". It's straight up a mountain. The top is beautiful but it was hard. And the smaller trails/map is confusing and not labeled well.

First time hiking it today and had a great time. Great view at the top and challenging the last mile or so with the up and down. Still enjoyed it but will probably be sore tomorrow .... but worth it.

Very nice trail. Never hiked in Alabama before. Very straight forward, easy to follow. I thought it was gonna be pretty easy but ended up adding a few challenging uphills my girlfriend didn’t enjoy. Great views.

The trail is well maintained and just a great morning hike. Would be great for the kids about 6 and up . My second time hiking this trail and enjoyed it just as much as the. first time. So get outside and enjoy the day. Go hiking everyone!

HikingBugsGreat!

I liked the distance but I wasn't super wild about the ecosystems we were going through. Petty, I know. Half of it was incredibly dry, the other half was super wet and quite buggy.
