Decent views along the trail for a short hike.

Great little hike. we brought the dog and she loved it. The bikers live this trail and connecting trails. Lots of beautiful pines, Moss, and rocks. Kinda reminds you of something you would see in the west.

Nice way to start a figure 8. Big rock to cedar rock to little river to burnt mountain & back. Nice views. Saw no one else early in the morning on a Thursday in July. Gets the heart pumping.

Fantastic trail. Pretty easy; my 4 year old went to the top and back. Incredible scenery and very cool to be on a granite dome bald.

Hiked up the trail and back down in less than an hour! When we got there we realized we could make a loop but we didn't have enough daylight. Pretty views and an easy ascent. We saw lots of mountain bikers!

More technical biking trail but fun nonetheless. Made a video. Look up Big Rock Descent on YouTube.
