Absolutely gorgeous loop leads through fields and forests, beautiful vistas and excellent elevation. There is an old private cabin along the route and an easy trail back to Revends Run Campground.

Highly recommend for a quick morning hike. Took me about 2 hours although I did stop to take photos along the way. There’s snow in some places but overall the trail is in good shape right now. Panorama point is a beautiful lookout spot. Trail strenuous in some places but overall pretty relaxing.

Just strenuous enough and fabulous views await at the top. Great for doggie companions, too!

Hiked just part of the trail with my mom before cutting back to the road towards our car. Great views, chilly outside of the trees in late November.

This trail is beautiful and challenging. I was not yet accustomed to the elevation so I found myself having to take more breaks than usual.
