With two kids, ages 8 and 10, it was an absolute hit! The tree canopies, water elements, and rock features...we will definitely do this hike again!

A nice hike with numerous campsites, an Appalachian Trail shelter, and stream. The lead up to the loop is a forestry road, so next time I'll begin at the loop, branching off to explore the AT on an out-and-back to add some distance.

A great day-hike with some amazing wandering through forests of rhododendron. Can't wait to hike this in May/June when the flowers are in bloom. Definitely start on the Locust Gap Trail heading northeast (up the mountain) and end on the AT heading south. The footing on the Hosack Run Trail is difficult in some parts and much easier heading up than coming down. A great hike!

not as easy on a hungover Sunday as Carol would lead you to believe but overall a great 5-7 mile trek.
