HikingBugsGreat!

Very nice day hiking up to the top of Morrow Mountain, weather was nice, only thing was smoke was still in the air coming up from the trail head. Lot of people at the top, entire families having fun and eating at the picnic tables provided by the park. Very nice people at the information office. Definitely recommend.

Great trail! The Morrow Mtn leg is a pretty steep climb but the view at the overlook is worth it. The Sugarloaf section is more rugged and also very steep, there’s no overlooks there but still some nice views through the trees.

Great trail for the area. The sugar loaf portion goes a little wonky but it’s still very well planned. There are some fallen trees you have to step over and some decent elevation gain for NC. Would def recommend!

Waterproof shoes are a lifesaver with all the mud on parts of the trail. Otherwise a great hike, well marked and easy to follow. Take the loop around the peak, it's worth it.

A great hike within driving distance of the triangle. Lots of elevation change and good views from the top. Great trail markings with maps! Went on a weekday holiday in winter and was not crowded at all.

Nice trial. The final half mile was a big push uphill. The road goes right to the top as well so it was more crowded than I like, but it was nice to have a bathroom and picnic tables at the top. We added the little mountain top loop which was my favorite part. Beautiful views!

Nice trail, a little muddy at the start and a pretty good incline to the top of the peak. Well marked and easy to follow.

Well maintained trail, not too difficult but gets steep towards the top. Nice hike with pleasant views of the surrounding area. Was muddy in spots when we went but manageable.

This is a lovely hike! My husband and I have hiked it a couple of times with the dogs and we really enjoy it. Usually its pretty quiet but more busy lately. Sometimes muddy but we've also had a lot of rain lately. Very clean trail!

Scary part of the mountain in the sugarloaf loop. Don’t go counterclockwise (right at the loop). Got left and go up and then turn around.

Really nice trail, but over 7 miles and NOT moderate - definitely difficult, in our opinion. Lovely views and scenery.

The beginning of the trail can be pretty muddy, but the rest of the trail is fairly well maintained. It’s pick your poison as to whether you go clockwise or counter clockwise up Morrow Mountain. If you go counter clockwise it can get kind of steep and whoever carved that rail forgot what switchbacks are. I can’t see going down that pitch as being easy either if you chose to go clockwise.

For a rustic trail it was marked very well with maps at various stops. Great view at the summit!
