This is a 5 mile hike....2.5 out and 2.5 back. It's challenging, especially on the way back!! But the views are amazing!

Made a few passes on this trail. Definitely worth the view each outing. Discovered apple trees on today's journey, after venturing further than ever before. Anyone looking for a beautiful day with strong cardio, you can't miss with this hike.

I agree with a "moderate" rating - the path is pretty clear of obstacles but the elevation will get your heart pumping. Beautiful view at the end. We were disappointed that a group of four motor cross bikes were also on the path, however. They went right past us but it was also a distraction from enjoying the sounds of nature.

This is a challenging trail, but fun. It has many up and down segments, which is an awesome workout, but can become very tiring, especially on the hike back. The entirety of this trail is winding through the middle of the forest, with several switchbacks. The downside is there are no views or clearings until you reach the 2.4 mile marker at the open pastures. The views from the pastures are beautiful. After turning onto Bearwallow Mtn road, you will drive 2 miles on a narrow gravel road as you climb to the top. You will see a metal gate on your left with a trailhead, but this trail will begin on your right at the log steps. The trail is well maintained and thoroughly marked throughout. There is enough parking for 6 or 7 cars along the side of the road, so I recommend arriving early to grab a spot. Overall, a good hike and workout, but we probably won't do this one again.

Was able to run this trail today. It is 100% runnable. If you are looking for vista or views you only get those at the 2.5 mile turn around point. One creek crossing and lots and ups and downs.
