This is an awesome hike! Very hard, but awesome!! If you start at the tunnel, go in the left one and the trail is on the left once you exit the tunnel. I totally missed it and ended up going back and starting at the other end. Going backwards, I ended at the tunnels and that was how I saw where the trail was. You're gonna get your feet wet, not only in the tunnel, but you have to cross a creek. The views were gorgeous on the ridge!! There is a small waterfall that was a surprise. There is no shade, so it's better to go in cooler weather and when the sun isn't out.

Definitely a leg burner, however, the view up top was well worth it!

be sure to bring hiking sticks. trail is muddy in some places. will need to cross the creek at one point. entrances seem blocked but you can still get through. great views . challenging but well worth the effort

Awesome hike! Went the last week of February and you have to cross the creek a few times and walk through these huge water tunnels. The views are amazing. On the top you walk across a ridge and have to climb up some rocks a few times. It's a blast and will go again and again.

SO RAD! Burnt my legs out huge. Started at the blue ridge head. The tunnels were a little high... super cool to end the hike with a cool down thru the water. Wasn't expecting how crazy awesome the trail was going be. The Ridge! So beautiful! Get there!

Great workout. Views from the top priceless. Glory Hole is amazing from the top and fantastic to see the lake filled with water. Is also nice to see the the hills lush and green through the valley.
