The Kings Chair has a great view. Start Blue trail at North Trailhead take to Kings Chair out and back continue on Blue trail to Red Blue connector. Then Red trail back to trailhead.

This was a great trail, but the hike out from the north trailhead is in the “moderate plus” range. That threw me off a little, as the first mile out was a lot more exercise than I was expecting from a “moderate” trail. After you get to the spot where the red connector meets, it is someplace in between easy and moderate. As a comparison, going out was similar in effort to the “ridge and valley” trail at Ruffner. However, the view at the top is the best in town.

This is one of my favorite hikes in the Birmingham area. Certainly a fun date with a semi-difficult hike to the top (depending on your activity level) and a very rewarding view at the end. I certainly recommend taking your time at the top of King's Chair so be sure to factor that into your allotted hiking time. It is great for dogs and offers a stunning view of the Chelsea area. It is always breezy at the top of King's chair, so plan accordingly.

Fairly easy route. Steep climb right out of North Trailhead. A lot of exposed tree roots. Great view and peaceful once you get to King’s Chair. Fairly easy hike out. Decided to skip Red-blue connector and go to orange connector so as to pass plane crash site. Nothing really to see. Took orange connector to Red road for feeder trail out to north trailhead. Red road is gentle downhill descent with a lot of gullies. Overall it was a good trail. Bring camera for great pics on overlooks.
