This trail is all switchbacks and sometimes a little steep. Make sure to bring water and a little snack to enjoy at the top while you sit back and enjoy the view. Going back is easier as it’s pretty much all down hill. Just be sure to wear some good hiking boots or a shoe with good traction as there is a lot of rocks on the trail. Best to go on a weekday to avoid crowds.

Very rocky and level of difficulty I'd say is between easy and moderate, leaning a little more toward moderate. The view at the top is amazing and one of the best I have seen on Maryland hikes - great to talk and snack with friends and family. Hard to social distance.

Great trail. Don’t be frightened by the other reviews of steep climbs. This is pretty moderate. Yes long gradual switchbacks and plenty of roots and rocks. It is the AT after all. Great view at the overlook.

This trail was definitely a butt-kicker for my boyfriend and I who are just getting into the swing of completing weekly hikes. All switchbacks and the way up is 90% up hill incline. I WOULD NOT recommend this trail for small dogs or anyone who has weak knees or ankles. The destination and view are SO worth the work and the views are serene and perfect to gaze upon while eating lunch

Nice trail. Can be steep at times. Not too far to the cliffs, but you can also go further on the AT. 9 year old kids love it.

Great trail. Not very long but the view is great once you get to the top. I consider this a easy to moderate trail. It can get tight on some parts making it hard to pass people. Would definitely recommend if you want an easy trail in the area.
