Great moderate hike to breathtaking overlooks.
fun beautiful well traveled trail. easy to moderate difficulty.
Great view, trail is rocky and with foliage on it, slippery. We loved it!
This trail was difficult but fun!
Enjoyed it very much. It was
well worth the drive and the hike!
Difficult for a beginner- very rocky and steep uphill climb. Tread carefully on the way down, especially when the rocks are wet. Beautiful hike, though! Once you get on the AT white blaze it's much easier.
There is parking at the trail head at the dead end of White Oak Rd.
Tough climb with the kiddos.
Great trail! Very rocky so make sure you have on boots. A lot of the trail follows a stream that you cross twice. Beautiful views at the top!
This is a fun trail that I will do again. My wife and I are in our mid 20s and while it was a nice steep climb, it is not super challenging. We took our 1 year old dog along and it was great for her as well. Discovered that at the intersection where you meet up with the Appalachian trail there is a little camp site, which would be a great overnight camp out in the wilderness.
