Nice forest trail with distance, elevation, scenery and calmness.

Pretty typical forest landscape. There is a nice section of pines for about a mile. The most remarkable part about this trail is the lack of roads. Whereas most of the trails in the park intersect roads or highways, this trail actually goes through quite a bit of uninterrupted forest. It is fairly quiet and free from road noise which is really nice!

Less hikers than other parts of the CVNP. But you're not alone. The first mile, clockwise, is noteworthy, but after that it's mostly quiet unremarkable forest... which is a good thing;)

A nice 2 hr hiking trail for a day with friends. No very steep areas. A few bodies of water that dogs will love and some cool areas with trees along both sides of the trail. Didn't see much wildlife, but wasn't expecting a ton anyways. Love CVNP!

Lovely hike through mostly wooded areas. Bring bug spray during the summer months.

Nice simple hike. One LONG STEEP down hill then just a couple of pretty easy rises. Nice to mix with oak hill trail if you want to shorten it a bit (or take oak hill and lengthen a bit.

Rather flat but long trail that has two small ponds. Most of the trail is in the woods and is shaded. Beautiful pines line parts of the trail. Good running trail and dog friendly. Makes for a nice long walk.

I didn't think this was a moderate to difficult trail. This seemed very easy. The only time it was more difficult was with the one incline. It was a nice, quiet walk in the woods. We only passed a few people and the shade from the trees was nice. It was a very mild day without a lot of humidity.
