This was an amazing hike! Starts out at a pretty steep, rocky climb that gains elevation quickly but has many parts that level out and are easier. About 1.2 miles to the big rock overlook at Cow Rock Mountain, and it's one of the best mountainous views I've seen yet. Totally worth it! Great spot for a break or lunch. If you continue on its about another mile or so to Wolf Laurel Top but this view wasn't nearly as good as Cow Rock. Total out and back trip 4.4 miles and I would rate it moderate with some easier, level parts. No bathroom facilities anywhere! Lots of loose rock so be careful not to turn an ankle. You will love this hike!
