Nice trail at Blackrock State Park trail. This is 1 of 2 of their signature trails and is by far the easier. 2.2 miles with some modest ascent and really just a medium or so difficulty. It does have a few areas of interest, including a spot with a really nice view, even with leaves, and a cool ridgeline walk along the Eastern continental divers. To the left, water goes to the Atlantic, to the right water goes to the gulf.

Really only a 3 star trail but it is really lush, the day was perfect, and I just really like this park. They have nice tent camping, great volunteers, and it is at 3500 ft so stays nice and cool

There was one lookout spot that had a nice view of mountains in the distance other than that just a typical wooded hiking trail. Nothing spectacular probably a one and done trail for us.
