The coolest short loop ive found at jefferson memorial. The knobs, the overlooks, couldn't ask for more
My favorite short but tough hike in Jefferson Memorial. Take the Tulip Tree paved path to the end and then up the hill to add a little length and a serious climb to your trip.
Great beginner trail for kids with nice hills
I really enjoyed this one. Nice elevation changes and pretty diverse views. Found 4 Geocaches near the trails. Lots of frogs and some lizards.
great views bathrooms locked
Awesome trail. Went with 2 dogs, great breaks in the hilly landscape, awesome views, good physical activity and easy parking / Park site, with picnic tables near entrance. Clear trail markers.
Loved this winter hike. The trees were bare so the vistas were breathtaking. There were leaves over mud, so parts of the trail were pretty slippery.
Jesse is right-this is a great fall hike, probably my third favorite hike in JMF.
Great hike. Lots of elevation change, with some good views. Views were somewhat obstructed due to the trees but still good. A fall hike would be great here.
Great trail and really not that difficult since you get to walk level a lot. Lots of water across trail today!
Short loop. One pretty good climb to the top, then a pretty easy hike after that. Like the other reviewer said, this one is good to add if you're doing multiple trails in JMF, or maybe to do the loop each way. And like all the JMF trails, it's always well-kept and well marked.
Combining this short loop along with others can make for a very scenic day. Trails are well marked in JMF.
