This review is after a hard storm we had the previous day so keep in mind. The trail is beautiful. However it’s more than a mile. I clocked it at 1.33 one way. I was here on Columbus weekend so it was busy on my way out. The last .4 mile is HARD. I do not live in an area that has these kinds of trails so I only get exposure to these types of elevations when I come up here once a year. The last bit is all very steep. The way down was scary for me bc my knee is still recovering from a torn meniscus but dang it was a slip and slide. I was rushing at the top bc it was busy and I couldn’t find the south summit. I lost the trail. The trail markers on last .5 mile or so could actually use some work tbh. Arab, was busy but the views were better. This trail if it was not a busy weekend is something that you should do if you prefer alone time and beautiful leaves. The road in is pretty cool too.

Fun short hike! Had the mountain to myself on a Saturday. Little bit muddy and slippery with wet leaves, but easy enough to navigate. Last .5 miles was tough if you’re out of shape like I am!

Awesome. We had the summit to ourselves on a Saturday afternoon, gorgeous blue sky day and fall foliage.

HikingMuddyScramble

Really nice walk through the woods until the last quarter mile, which was a little steep. The trail to the south summit was a moderate scramble but worth it for the view. Did the hike with my 10 year old. He handled it fine, though getting to the south summit was a fun challenge for him. It rained a little earlier in the day so there were a few sections that were very muddy. We had the entire mountain to ourselves which was pretty cool. It was hard to find the parking lot and trailhead. That was slightly confusing so knocking off one star for that and the mud. We had a great day in this fun hike.

definitely isnt a mile. beautiful trail that was a bit muddy but to be expected with the rain. the north summit isnt much of a view just follow to the south summit and its beautiful. the road to the trail is paved and then turns into dirt gravel go slow as ky car is lower.

The one mile advertised from the trail head is not accurate - it seems like 2 miles. Nice mellow logging road for way in - the last half mile is steep

HikingGreat!Muddy

As someone who is an average hiker, don’t let the 3.4 miles fool you. The last 20-25 minutes of the trail is all uphill, and it’s pretty steep for the most part. But the VIEW it gorgeous, there are two: the first faces North and the second faces South. Nice place to sit, relax and soak in the view! Also you get great cell service which is rare around here especially when you’re camping. Totally recommend!!!

HikingGreat!

To me this was a bit boring but still very fun. The first part of it you’re right along the road before you set up the mountain. This one we had started out in the morning and had the entire place to ourselves so that made it enjoyable.

Really great trail ! Might be a bit boring for avid hikers since the first half is following a road. Perfect for today because of the snow! Really easy to follow even though we were the first ones out since the snowfall. Some bits were marshy but really easy hike. Super quiet too, it was just us and a dozen deer we counted running around which was cool to see.

First to Review

Loved this trail! I would consider this an easy-moderate; easy for more regular hikers and maybe moderate for families because you have a few tenths of a mile that is a bit steep getting to the first summit. Did this with my 2 pups and we had the trail to ourselves! Starts out on a broad woods road, then the trail cuts in to the woods where it meanders for a short while with little to no elevation gain. Once you begin the ascent, there a few switchbacks. Like so many Dacks hikes, the views are phenomenal. It's about 1.8 miles from the parking area to the first summit, and the trail continues on for another ~8 miles to the south summit. Due to the short nature of this trail, I would say it's very doable for kiddos and definitely a great dog trail, as well.
