Great hike...not sure if I would consider it a hard hike but a high end moderate. Lots of deer if you are quiet and keep your eyes peeled.

Great trail, not really challenging but it's good to warm up and practice here.

Not to be confused with "Watchung Mountain." Directions from the App may not route correctly (Apple Maps took the drive into and adjacent apartment community). Appears trail starts in Chimney Rock Park. Check park schedule: evening of visit was wall-to-wall with little league games (no parking, noisy, over-crowded). Did not get to trail because of this. Will not try again.

This trail is not difficult for hiking in fact its rather easy. The trail starts at a baseball park in a parking lot, then goes through a frisbee golf course. Then the trail leads you across a main road in a slight incline then down again. We wound up getting a bit lost since we had to go across another road. After that the trail was easily followed and eventually lead to another parking lot and you guessed it another road. You finish off walking behind people's back yard and then finnaly ....another road. Wasn't difficult for hiking. I could see this being a great mountain biking spot

A decent, pretty flat hike. There are a lot of different trails to choose from, but I'd be careful to follow the tracker because many of the trails aren't well marked, as others have said. The view of the reservoir is nice, with a lot of rocky overlooks to sit and relax on while enjoying the scenery.

Nice trail. No markings makes it hard to know where you're going.

One of my favorite places to visit. There are a lot of neat little areas that are just so nice to sit in and soak up the view. The trails are not marked very well, but if you have a day to just explore, this park is a nice one to do so.

Nice leisure trail out and back from Washington Valley parking lot, out around the reservoir. Pretty flat out and obviously a popular mountain biking trail.

My track is only with the help if this app and GPS, because this trail is poorly marked. There were many forks that were unmarked throughout this track. One turn was through a broken down metal fence which looked sketchy. Would do it again, but only with All Trails tracker.
