This is a moderate hike. Nice and shady as well as a cool breeze on the day we hiked in May. Saw 3 snakes tho. Great trek, check out Picnic nearby for lunch. 5 stars.

Nice trail. When you get to the loop portion going left is the biggest elevation change part of the trail which I was glad I tackled first.

Not crowded, clearly marked, and beautiful. I set up my hammock along the Eno on my return across the footbridge... just gorgeous! A good amount of elevation change to keep your heart rate up.

Well kept and clearly marked, but also challenging with lots of elevation change. It seems like they've made the trail a bit longer than is currently marked here, but there's no danger of getting lost.

A little upset they re routed the trail to not have a challenging climb.

The scenery was amazing. Lots of different terrain and elevation changes. EXCELLENT workout if you're trying to build up stamina. Absolutely enjoyed myself!
