Take the blue blazed trail when you get to the shelter and come back down the Appalachian trail, this makes for a slightly easier hike up. Either will get your heart flowing. Very rocky so watch your step! The view at the top is worth it!

This was a great hike. My daughter who is 9, our 25lb mutt, my husband and I really enjoyed it. We were lucky to park in one of the three spots at the trail head but it looked like there was more available about 1/2 the way we came in. Luckily we spoke to two hikers who knew this trail and were able to give us a few tips. The first is that trail doesn't start out blue. You have to follow the white trail across from the three car parking. There will be a split between blue and the white trail. The blue trail is. the easier of the two but still a uphill workout. If you want a more challenging hike with more rock climbing go white. We took blue and came back down white and we were really happy we did. The view from the top is a great view. We hardly saw any other hikers going up and were surprised to see groups of hikers also enjoying the view. Overall it's a really nice hike not too long but long enough to feel acomplished.

This was a nice quick 2-hour hike. Taking the blue trail up then the white trail (AT) down, doing the loop clockwise is easier than the other way around. The parking at the Old Forge Rd where AT intersects the road is very limited (max 4 cars). But a half mile before that point there is a large parking lot with plenty of spaces.

Took the AT up to Chimney Rocks. It is a pretty steep climb, but if you take your time, fairly easy. The view is beautiful. Took the blue trail down and saw beautiful streams and falls. Will definitely be back.
