A very rocky trail with several steep grades that cuts through a mature oak/hickory forest, including some small American chestnuts. Provides access to White Rocks, a series of cliffs overlooking the Monocacy and Potomac river valleys. Wildlife is abundant, including an occasional black bear.

nice autumn hike on an 80 degree Indian Summer day. Saw no one else on this particular trail, on a Monday.

Nice trail, especially if you want to avoid the crowds at the summit. It can be done in one full loop, or combine it with any number of intersecting trails for lots of loop possibilities. I combined it with the white and blue trails for a 9-mile hike.

I don't consider myself an avid hiker but this trail was enjoyable. It can get a bit confusing with all the intersecting trails but it was still good if you know where your going. Definitely great hike to take the kids and grandparents
