Great hike! Less cliffs and more forest hiking, but I'd still rate it a 6/10 for difficulty, mainly due to the distance. Some stream crossovers and fairly steep hills to traverse.
Me, my wife, our dog and our three kids (ages 5, 7 & 11) conquered this trail in roughly 6.5 hours. We took plenty of breaks and had lunch near an awesome stream!
Well maintained trail. About 1300 ft ups and downs. Need to revisit when the rhododendrons are in bloom!
Just took this hike today it was great.
Great hike with lots to see
One of the regions best trails! Vistas abound on this fairly basic trail that mostly follows an essentially flat ridgeline or makes its way downhill into the valley where it meets up with a great stream. After over 10 yrs of hiking The Red this and the rough trail are my favorites...and I make sure i visit it every time I go. Should be at the top of your to do list if you haven't been there.
I walked up and down this trail! And looked for that lookout point and couldn't find it! Where is it?!
We combined this trail with the Rough Trail, Pinch-Em-Tight and Buck trails to make an 8-mile loop. Climbing to the ridge tops from Chimney Top creek was quite challenging and overall a great hike.
Koomer Ridge Trail begins as an easy stroll which heads towards a junction with Buck Trail. There is a nice backcountry campsite at this junction. KR breaks NE and slowly begins descending to Chimney Top Creek. Be prepared for an awesome lowland creek bottom with plenty of campsites. This trail ends at a junction with Rough Trail.
