Lots of elevation and lose rocks. Make sure you have water and good shoes. Plenty of people but worth the hike.

It was okay. I didn't realize that it was the same trail down as up. Great view at the top. Not exactly puppy friendly; too many rocks on the trail. Steep. A little bit more difficult than a moderate hike.

Steep at time but worth the view from the overlook at the top

This, for me, was difficult. Seemed either straight up, or straight down with very little reprieve in between. There was really nothing impressive about the trail. Did the Vogel Overlook, which was somewhat disappointing. All that work for a glimpse of a lake. I'm in the Georgia Mountains, I was expecting great mountain views. Didn't happen. Plus a big section near the last mile or two, is very poorly marked. You have to do a huge rock formation "roundabout " You need to look for the green blaze or you will go the wrong way. It's also confusing near the last mile, where Bear Hair and Coosa meet up, there's red blazes everywhere, you have to search for the green ones. Anyway , I got to be outside on a trail, so I rated it a 3.

moderate, good beginners trail. nice view at summit of Vogel lake. this trails connects with Coosa backcountry trail, as well as Duncan ridge trail, intersecting AT. then you can hike north to Blood mountain....and back to Vogel sp, or to Neels gap....resulting in a longrt mare difficult hike.

Hiked the last weekend in October. As others said great hike but it does take several hours to do the full loop. If short on time after you see the overlook go back the same way you came. The other part of the loop can be challenging for some.

A classic North Georgia moderate trail both in elevation and distance.
