This is a nice little out and back trail with two scenic view spots. I would describe as easy to moderate with a couple of steep spots.

Nice quick trail, good for a couple of hours outside with a killer view. Pretty steady incline for about half the walk.

I thoroughly enjoyed this with my ten week old Aussie. There are challenging parts that feel great once over with. Going down them you need to be fit and ready for.

Met a handful of Appalachian travelers because the trails overlap. Nice quick steep hike with beautiful views.

This is a great short hike. The scramble at the top of Lion's Head is a lot of fun, or you can take the trail past it and loop back up to avoid it. The views are well worth the trek!
