Fun hike on a well marked trail. Not a lot to see in scenic views as most of the tail is in the woods. A few spots had a steep incline, but nothing too serious.

Nice trail. Well marked. A couple of elevation changes, but mostly along the ridge. Not much in the way of views, but we did see several deer and some skittish chipmunks.

there's a couple inclines but nice variation of terrain and overall pleasant hike. I only ran into 5 people on the whole trail. no grand views or anything but its nice to be on a loop for convenience.

Trail was well marked with signs every 1/2 mile or so. The trail was quite empty on this fall day and the colors were beautiful!

This is an awesome park. There are several trails that connect along big red trail. Big red had quite an incline at one point, so I'd actually label this trail as MODERATE. dogs are welcome from October 1st - the beginning of May.
