A moderate 5mi loop hike with uphill and downhill sections of the trail that include moderate to steep inclines. Features Maryland’s largest cascading waterfall at 78 feet and two stunning vistas.

This is a beautiful forested trail with some moderate climbs. We tacked on a portion of the Thurmond Vista trail for some additional distance and views, cutting back to the visitors center before Wolf rock (roughly 6 miles total). It took us about 2hrs 40 min with some stops to take in the views and the falls. Recommend going counterclockwise.

Fun trail with nice views, good elevation changes, and friendly people. Most of the hike is in the shade with a good halfway point parking lot with bathroom and picnic tables.

Really enjoyed the view at Hog Rock, was my favorite. Had trouble figuring out a way to see the falls and was slightly disappointed upon arrival. Overall a very nice hike. Took us around 2 hours, not including stopping to look at the beautiful scenery.
