Did this recently on 3/21/15, so worth it! Wonderful trail which was marked very well. Lots of great rock formations, small waterfalls and plenty of deer and turkey to see in the woods. Trail was not busy at all. Not as hard as Buzzard Roost Rock trail. When you go, be sure to visit Blake's Pharmacy in West Union for lunch, great chicken salad sandwiches and the best milkshakes and malts for about 1.00 and soda for .25!
The family walked this trail last year and it was a good time. The kids liked all the different plant life along the trail and the pond just off the trail that is close to the end. I did not get to GPS the trail then, may do it again to log the tracks and time.
We hiked this one today. My husband used the MapMyHike gps based app which showed the hike to be 4.25 miles, rather than the 2.5 miles that is listed at the link below. It's not as strenuous as the nearby Buzzardroost hike. But, it will still give you a workout. There's some areas where the trail is very near the side of the cliffs so be careful with kids on this trail. Our 7 yo was with us today and she held up very well.
