This was a very nice trail to hike. It was rather difficult at times so I had to carry my 4 year old. Not sure why this is called kid friendly. We came across a copperhead so watch your step! Be prepared to cross water several times.

Great scenery once you get to the top but very steep and rocky towards about the halfway mark. Lower levels were very washed out and muddy but great nature walk. There was no good spot to cross the stream at the very beginning but we got creative and balanced across the fallen trees, which the kids enjoyed very much. No real good places to stop for rests but overall a beautiful trail.. well worth getting the whole way to the summit!

Like everyone said, ruined. The view sparkles in the day time from all the broken bottles.

Another former scenic area heavily degraded by humans, If only this spot could have been patrolled more by the DNR. or forest service over the years and it should have been gated off at night. I still remember when the rock wall was intact but it's always had too much broken glass and trash to truly enjoy it.

This is actually not necessarily a hiking trail. But there are numerous hikes that branch off of Hogshead Road near to Buzzards rocks that are undiscovered. Including an old hobo house which dates to the 1800s?
