Easy to find as just off Blue Ridge Parkway. All Trails app indicates a 2 mile hike but nowhere to go after reaching rock summit after half mile in. So, a really good trail if you a looking for a short hike with greats views.

Great trail. Lots of large rocks as stepping stones. Slippery wet wet. Very steep in some areas but for short distances. Great views at many locations.

Seemed to be more strenuous than other trails ranked as moderate, but worth the view.
