Not sure why this is rated as Moderate as it is a very easy trail. My 8, 6, & 4 yr old had no issues at all. It is almost completely flat the entire trail with very few inclines/declines of any significance. Great for young kids and a great overlook view along the way.

Can't beat the view. Sat there forever, just soaking it all in.

Hiked this with our three dogs today. Challenging due to considerable incline and loose rocks at times during declines.

Great wide trail - even if we passed-by some large groups, trail was spacious enough that we didn't have to go into the brush for the sake of doggie excitement.

Hiked from the parking lot to the Hog Rock down to Cunningham Falls in the Spring before the leaves came in on a cloudy day. Not much of a view as a result but would be gorgeous otherwise. Short but somewhat steep downhill...easy overall but could present challenges for some. Falls was crowded.

One of the best views I've seen in Maryland. Park right in the gravel lot, and walk 30 feet to the stairs. You can walk to the edge, or climb down along the left side and stand on one of the lower ledges.

Love the colors of the graffiti, but wish they could have actually made art out of it and not just a bunch of names.

You can then hike down the trail to the left of the rock and eventually join up with the Appalachian trail. It's a pretty rocky and steep climb down though, was not particularly scenic or enjoyable.

Great view however we just drove up to the overlook and didn't see where you could do a hike up. My kids loved exploring around the face of the rock.
