Not well maintained or marked. Got lost, ended up in the briars. Great exercise, rated moderate but I was winded. Parts have nice shade. Hasn’t rained recently, so it was dry. No view due to over growth.

We took the mountains to see trail that was partway up the water rock knob Trail. It was fantastic! Gives you a lot of fun views in a majestic forest right on the side of a mountain.

Awesome hike but a rough trail.

This is a short little trail that runs southwest from the road that leads up to the Waterrock Knob Visitor’s Center. The trail starts on the southern side of the BRP. It’s only .8 of a mile (one way). There are a couple places on the way up that offer views but not much to see from the summit. Yellow Face is 6,032 feet tall and part of the SB6K Challenge.

Took Yellowface trail up and it was a moderate hike and fairly beautiful for most of the way, but quite disappointing when reaching the top. Field of blackberry/raspberry canes and a few Balsams. Not much of a view. Nothing like Tennant or Black Balsam.

The trail head is quite hidden at the bottom of the turn up to Waterrock Knob but it makes for an exclusive adventure! Not many views on this trail but it’s beautiful and smells like Christmas!
