The trail was right around 10 miles and took us a little less than 3.5 hours to complete. We arrived at the trailhead at 8 am and many cars were already there (over full by the time we finished), so I would recommend getting there early on a nice Saturday. The trail is heavily used for mountain bikers so be aware of them, they come at you pretty quickly and some of the trail spots are narrow. Most of the trail is gravel road, so I would not recommend it to someone who wants to strictly trail hike. overall, I enjoy being in the woods but we did not think it was that strenuous to meet a hard rating.

We really enjoyed this trail but way too many bikes. If you are a hiker be very alert and get ready to move off the trail A LOT! Easy grades and surfaces. Started off by going up Rice pinnacle road. Definitely needed the All trails app to keep us on track. Got off somehow toward the 7 mile mark at a switchback but found a connector fairly easily.

Great hike! Perfect 9ish mile trek - nice incline and descent and a couple of spots with beautiful views. Make sure to follow the digital map on AllTrails or you can get turned around on other trails that intersect.

First to Review

The climb from the parking lot to where the Hickory Loop track intersects is about 3 miles uphill. Excellent workout, and the descent is well worth the climb.
