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.
