Gorgeous trail, so fun! Lots of scrambles. Quite steep near the beginning, but worth it.

Drove unpaved road to Gilley Field parking area and hiked up Razorback. Steep climb at times but especially fun once you got to the part with all the boulders. Heights/drop offs not too scary! Beautiful views both to the north and south. Came back down Great Notch which was pleasant and easy walk through the woods. Super quiet and peaceful trail even in peak season.

Great hike. A little steep in some areas but nothing too crazy if you have hiking boots. This is definitely the place to stop and have lunch, once at the summit the view is amazing! Definitely will do again.

Very fun hike with some challenging climbing. Great view. Part of my loop

I liked this trail as part of my loop. I went up and found it not bad going. The open ledges were somewhat slippery mossy in areas but take your time and they are fine. The views were good. It sort of follows along a spine like ridge of ledges. Once you get to the ledges it is the best hiking. The roots and mud on the lower part were less here than the other trails up the mountain. I believe the ideal loop for this would be. Up this trail and across to Mansell and down the Perpindicular Trail. I did as part of loop up and around back by way of the great pond trail. Bring bug spray.

This trail was interesting. There were a couple really nice wide open places to sit and look out at the view. It would be good for bringing up a picnic. It's not as bad as some of the other trails for people afraid of heights. The rock steps in the beginning are quiet a workout if you take them quick. A lot of the path is smooth rock. It had rained the day before we went and we had to slide down the rock on our butts because we kept slipping on the mossy areas - even with hiking boots.
