This is an easy trail with a few inclines and some rocky areas. My big complaint with it is that it’s very narrow once you get about a half mile from the trailhead and there’s a lot of mountain bikers using the trail as well. To avoid being run over I had to pay more attention to whether or not there was a mountain bike flying around a blind corner than enjoying the scenery. The thing I really do enjoy about the trail is that it links up with trails connected to Bobcat Ridge and Devil’s Backbone.

Lots of mountain bikes made this trail far too busy, especially with a dog that is hard to pull out of the way in time for fast-moving bikes. The whole thing is quite sun exposed as well. Not a great choice as a hiker.

This is a great trail for young ones! My six year old loves walking this area.

decent family hike maybe, some decent views but too many houses and roads near the trail.

Easy walking trail with very little shade. There were more mountain bikers on the trail than hikers.

Loved the trail and the view. I hiked it but I think a mountain bike is more the idea on this one.
