Short hike today. Super muggy outside we made it to the little waterfall then back out.

Nice wide trail with only a few somewhat narrow places. I would rate this moderate for the blue and red trails. Strenuous for getting up the mountain. A lot of the trail was small rock, so steady shoes a must and a hiking stick also nice...a barrel of them at the trailhead are available for those who didn't bring one along. Did this with my dog who is trail hardy and the mountain climb wore her out. The view is great as you see the valley below and the Blue Ridge beyond. Be sure to bring some water along. Overall, a nice walk in the woods!

Beautiful hike! The trail itself is in great shape and only gets tough near the top. The work is worth the rest and view!

Nice hike. I would call it moderate and not easy due to the mountain. There is also a nice .25 mile paved walking path. All the paths are well marked and easy to follow. Nice and clean bathrooms available and picnic areas. Very peaceful and low traveled paths.
