I definitely would not consider this a “moderate” hike. I extended it and went over to Wolf Rock and Chimney Rock and I still didn’t think this was moderate. The hike itself is easy. With the leaves covering the trail and some of the rocks, it could be considered lightly moderate in winter/fall. Otherwise, it was a lovely easy hike and I would definitely do it again! The views were nice and it was good to be in nature.

A steep hill from Charcoal parking lot and a rocky climb down to a joining trail. Beautiful view of Thurmont and a must hike. It is a fairly rocky trail so beware.

Really nice hike! I went in the fall and the trees covered some of the views. I can imagine the winter being a better time to go to see more from the view points.

Parked at Thurmont parking lot and hiked with my teen daughter. Middle of the week. Had the trail to ourselves all the way up. Glorious silence. Holy cow do those gnats and skeetoes love me! I'm outta shape so It was challenging for rookie hiker like me. It got rocky and kinda steep on some parts but the feeling of accomplishment when I reached the top! The view made it so worth the climb. Even though it was a bit hazy. Will hike again.

Good trail. Expect a rocky outing. Good loop plus Wolf Rock was fun.

Did a loop from the visitors center totaling 6 miles. Nice day with the pups!! Got out there early to be the heat and the people. Headed to a winery for picnic lunch :)

This is a nice hike. Some parts of the path are very steep. There are a few spots with great views.
