Trail is in pretty good shape and not too difficult. One climb at the beginning and a 1/2 mile climb on a gravel road at the end. I actually prefer to do the loop counterclockwise starting on Miller’s Gap Road. During the summer the Darlington Trail portion is starting to get overgrown with weeds, but is still easy to follow. You can still wear shorts, but I’d recommend plenty of DEET. The lower portion of the trail is not marked, but is heavily used by mountain bikers so it is not hard to keep on track. It also has a few spots with running water if you have a dog with you. There is a trail between the Darlington Trail and the Lamb’s Gap Trail that parallels both and stays in the woods if you don’t want to walk on Idle Road. I will try to map it the next time I go out that way.

There are signs up saying no mountain biking. Maybe that is a new thing, but it sucks driving all the way out there to be told you can't ride.

my experience was the same as Cindy below. I also over shot the change in trials and stayed on Darlington trail longer. I never did find what is supposed to be Lambs Gap trail. When i realized i could walk Millers Gap Rd and pick up Lambs Gap Rd trail again, i was late on time. and back tracked out on Darlington. When i got back to my car at top of Lambs Gap Rd, i took the Idle rd on Perry County side through game lands. This follows the trail path on GPS . You reach a parking lot, where it appears the trail heads off on a well defined trail in the game lands. This may be a better starting point. The woods are beautiful in this area, so I may try again.

Easy 7+ mile hike. You definitely want to download the map before you head out because the hike is not labeled well. A few little climbs but nothing to serious. Great hike for dogs and kids.

First part of the trail was great, but it was the Darlington Trail so it was very well maintained. Once you were off Darlington, you were on your own ...so Thank God for this app because without it I may still be in the woods. The second half of the hike is not marked or if it is, it is not marked well. It is not maintained and it is quite isolated. The last mile of the hike is a road, which I don’t consider a hike but a walk. And to add insult to injury, it was a steady incline. It took me 7 miles due to hiking longer on Darlington before realizing I was off the original trail. If you enjoy road work as part of your hikes than this hike is for you. Otherwise, I would hike on other trails in the area that are much better maintained, marked and remain in the woods.

Relatively easy trail, would recommend it for someone not looking for anything too rocky but has some length to it.

This is a good hike with mixed elevation. Some parts in the middle are muddy or through water. The last mile or so is on a road.

This was a really nice trail! Once you are done on the portion of Darlington (orange markers) you walk the road until you find the unmarked trail. The unmarked portion was super easy to follow even with no markings. The trail ended with an uphill walk on the gravel road.

This was an overall good hike. We went clockwise the Darlington trail all the way to the old logging road was well marked. The second part of the loop was randomly marked witch is no big deal with All Trail app. Pretty good work out and descent elevation gain. However we only showed 6 miles
