"Easy" probably a better description. No steep climbs, no bouldering. Most trails are wide, soft, well-maintained, and well-shaded.

Highly recommend picking up a printed map at the trailhead, and noting which blazes to follow on which sections of the hike, the trail network is complex.

The section beyond Blue Mt. Parkway is unmarked, overgrown, and skirts private property. Highly recommend long pants for this area, as it is highly overgrown.

First time here- great hike. Multiple "named" trails- very well marked- paths well maintained and clear. Lots of trail options depending on the distance and difficulty you're looking for. Main parking lot had restrooms and water fountains. Will definitely return.

Nice hike. I have been on every trail at Boyd and this one is as good as most of them. I prefer going off trail but this trail is a good one.
