You are likely to see deer, turtles, birds, and other small wildlife on your hike up to the overlook. Once there, the view of the Pee Dee river and Lake Tillery are amazing. It is an easy hike each way, with the exception of the last part leading to the overlook, which can be slippery.

For the most part moderate is correct. The uphill 1.5 mile at the end is rough on 60 year old man

Beautiful trail. Can be a bit slippery with autumn leaves and quite steep at the top. Just FYI, the directions lead you to the top of the mountain to park, and the trail is then down and back up (out and back). Opposite my preference.

Moderate trail but last climb to top is strenuous. Beautiful views if leaves are sparse. Great day trip from Raleigh area. Pack a picnic lunch or BBQ. Picnic benches and clean bathroom accommodations at the top. Parking available at top of mountain or by the museum and you can access the trails from either location. Noticed they had a shelter/pavilion that is available to reserve.

This is more strenuous than moderate. Nice views if the skies are clear.

Great work out, lots of elevation changes. I do recommend that those with week ankles wear hightop hiking boots. Lots of shade but never found the waterfall, could have been too dry.
