Great easy family friendly hike. Did a bit of trail running with the kids and they loved all the fallen trees along the side of the trail, which made for a great obstacle course. Easy to find parking and other hikers had left plenty of walking sticks behind.

We loved running about 8.5 miles on this trail. Mostly flat, well maintained, great forest and open pastures. Definitely recommend this as a trail run!

As a trail runner, I decided to run this and not hike it. Definitely worth it and will be doing it again. Great views!

It's exactly 2.5 mi from the parking lot on 850 to the view. This part of the AT is nice in that it rises steadily and then levels out giving you time to recover. The steepest portion is hard but is relatively short and the view is rewarding.

I went another 1.5 mi along the ridge. It is level but rocky which caused me mind every step.

I'd say this is on the more difficult side of the moderate rating.
