First time - lots of broken glass by ruins made me worried for my dogs feet. From there we turned back to parking lot to follow marked trail. Without knowing the trail it was like we kept going and going thinking maybe the vista was overgrown - but then it came! Nice view was a needed reward.
Went with 11 yo daughter who did well. We aren’t avid hikers - very recreational and occasional. I sweated a lot and it got my breath moving. Workout but not too much. Horse flies buzzing in ears while time so glad we had bug spray. It was 85 degree day but in woods cooler. Glad we had a snack cause we needed it. Would do it again but prob in fall. Like Pisgah more.
