Very easy walk and well maintained. Too close to road for my liking and not much to see along the way except a few old buildings.

A relatively flat, wooded trail. Definitely don't miss out on continuing on to Cascade Falls.

By itself, a nice short walk in the woods. No views and it can be noisy, as it follows the Blue Ridge Parkway closely (but mostly below and out of sight). But there is a picturesque old log cabin. And the trail works well with the Cascades Falls Trail if you would like to add an extra 1.2 miles to your hike.
