It's a lot of work for the view, but the trail's well maintained and the hard work comes after you are, shall we say, fully warmed up? Nice physical challenge.

Trail well-shaded and well-maintained throughout. Very easy from trailhead to Wertzville Road- after you cross under the road, things become a bit rockier, and there is more of a steady grade. The climb up to the Overlook is fairly rocky and steep, but not terribly challenging.

For me it began easy then became moderate and finished as strenuous near the top. Well marked.

Good trail. Did it today with a group. We started on Bernheisel Bridge Road so it was about 7.5 miles round trip. Would do it again

Just hiked it for the first time! Great trail, lookout is good would be even better if the leaves were down. If it rained recently watch out, path looks like it could easily get mucky. They do have boards and traction around though. Good hike! Lots of fun.

The trail between Bernheisel Bridge Road and the Cumberland Overlook is maintained quite well. The hike is a fairly gentle switchback most of the way up and gets steep near the end. The mountainside faces south and can get warm. We managed to see a black snake today and the air temp was only 60F.
