Nice view from the overlook and decent workout doing both loops.

It was a moderate hike with a great view of Cartersville. The trail was not much to speak of but the view was worth the hike.

Loved it, though there are several points that are beyond moderate in my opinion.

Great hike for those that don't want to drive to North Ga. Spectacular view at summit between East and West loops. This hike is moderate and most people will be able to complete this hike and feel like they accomplished something.

This is the best trail I have ever done!! I gave it a four star rating because of the rocks. Other than that it was awesome!! It also was a great view when you go to the top!!! I would definitely recommend this trail!!!

I loved this trail! Challenging with a gorgeous view at the end. Be sure you have on good shoes because it is very rocky in some sections.

Pretty strenuous hike up with a lot of cut throughs. This trail is worth it for the view you get at the top. Bring your hammock and chill before descending. Dog friendly

Great views! Weird amount of yellow jackets at the top but beautiful hike. Lot of rocky terrain.

This is a nice local trail to warm up the legs when there is not enough time for lengthier excursions. It is easily accessible and has a nice view on the top as well. The major con for this trail would be the crowds that come, especially on weekends. This is a dog-friendly trail (which I do not mind). Unfortunately, some of the dog owners are irresponsible...so, watch where you step!

For around here, this short hike is easily accessible, right off of I75, great parking and superb view!

Take the loop counter-clockwise... save the rocky side for the downward hike.

July 4th hike of the west trail loop. Well maintained and the blazes are marked well, too.
The parking lot is large and there is a portapot.
It is listed as a moderate hike and it fits that description fairly well.
Now I must return to take on the other trails in the same rec area.
