A tough uphill for the first mile or so but the North Trail views were spectacular and so worth the climb. Definitely going back in a few weeks.

Good hike...We turned this trail into a loop trail by starting with Woodpecker trail at the Nature Center, AT, then second entrance to the North Trail, came down to Charcoal trail and then Prairie Grass trail around back to Nature Center. Approx. 7 miles.

Good hike. Used five of the trails to make a 7 mile loop. Warning that the Charcoal trail is NOT well maintained. Had a great hike and the scenery was spot on. Great day!

Love this trail although be careful as the connecting winter trail shows up incorrectly on the app. We go totally lost for hours in the heat with no food or water left. It was a bad situation but than goodness we found our way back to the trail and met up with some awesome hikers that gave us water! Never leave the trails my friends!!!!

Nice trail with a fairly significant steady incline for the first 2 miles. Nice shade with rest area and flowing water too. Enjoy!
