Also known as Raiders Ridge. Not all the trail junctions are marked so be sure to study the kiosk maps in the beginning of hike and get your turns memorized.

Great hike. I went on a Wednesday evening and saw very few bikers and no other hikers. I had a hard time figuring out where to park. I ended up parking in an apartment complex’s lot. It seemed to have plenty of parking but felt weird doing it.

Great loop route. The last downhill section is a decent amount of loose stone. I recommend switching back over to the “in” side to make it a little easier. All in all, great hike

Ok so I haven't done the hike yet but I already realize parking is an issue for this one since it's right off College drive. Can anyone tell me where they may have parked to get to the trail?
