easy gravel road to great views. continue under ramp to make it a loop. found the cave but did not crawl in. sad there is always so much garbage all the way from the parking lot to the top.

dirt road to the top but worth the views. parking area is a gravel lot on the right that is unmarked but shows up on Google maps. there is a yellow gate just before the hike to keep cars off the trail, if u go that far you'll be backing down the narrow road

Overall, this a pretty easy trail with a lot of smaller side trails to explore along the way. The side trails are not marked, so it can be easy to get lost. The view at the top is amazing, and you get a view of the entire town of Lenoir with the blue ridge mountains in the background. Cant wait to show friends this hike.

You go up the side of a mountain to a beautiful view. not hard, just an incline. super easy 45 minute hike up!

Great view. Definitely not strenuous but a nice walk. The AllTrails description says there is a cave but we didn't find it.

The view at the top is gorgeous. Definitely worth it. I wouldn’t say this is a very hard trail, but rather more moderate. It does get steeper toward the top, but it’s nothing too bad. Overall its a nice little hike and because the view is so great, I’d say its one of my favorites.

Pretty easy. Gradual incline all the way up for 2.5 miles. Probably a little over 500 feet in elevation gain. This is at the west end of the Brushy Mtn range. View at the top is pretty sick. Overlooking Lenoir with the beginning of the Blue Ridge in the back. Grandfather Mtn is right in front of you. I could also see Table Rock Mtn and Hawksbill Mtn in the Linville Gorge. Also, the creator of this page didn't draw the route or get it approved by AllTrails, so Thank You to him or her for letting me do that part of it to increase my reputation score.
