Description
Waypoints (0)

This is a very nice hike if you are looking for some rugged terrain and climbs. Seasonally, the fallen leaves can cover up any rocks ( and there are a lot ) on the trail so wear great hiking footwear and don't rush. If you plan on visiting near the end of the year wear bright colors as there is hunting allowed on parts of the "ORANGE" loop. There are signs posted, and a detour trail marked with "RED & WHITE" which is a challenging and fun option. Please note that the trail borders private property.

Loop trail closed due to hunting, disappointing, so we took trail with white markers. Also crowded, next time I’ll go during the week.

Pretty casual trail, tough in the fall with all the leaves to follow trail in some areas.

Embarked on this trail with high expectations. The beginning of the trial is nice with little footbridges and a warm feeling of excitement. But that quickly turns south fast. A steep uphill climb up a rocky slope I lost my footing multiple times clinging to trees so I wouldn’t fall backwards and tumble down the rocky slope. Shortly after, the trail took us to a road with no marking of where to go next. Unless you are Daniel Boone you will have no idea where to go next. We ended up walking in the complete wrong direction and ended up at a AT&T tower. Thank god I had excellent phone service at the time, since I had to open the app to see where the hell we were. So we turned around and decided to head back with the app guiding us. We still managed to get lost. Finally made it to the look out, spotted lantern flies swarmed us and almost had us fall to our death.

There were hunters with crossbows on the orange trail so cut trip to cove trail out and back and ended early. WEAR ORANGE if going now through end of year.

Need sturdy boots for fist-size gravel. Frustrating at times even with good footwear. Beautiful trail and views!!

Nice trail and fairly well marked. I have find if you’re not watching in some areas it’s easy to take a wrong turn onto one of the offshoots but still retry easy to get back on track. Lots of area to explore.

really glad I had downloaded the map as this was not well marked. A lot of loose stones posed challenges as well, but it was a wonderful day to be out enjoying nature and the views.

RunningGreat!

Most of the trail was well marked. However, there was 4 times where I had absolutely no clue where the trail continued and actually had to stop and/or turn back. At one point the trail just ends and turns into a intersection with no arrows, marker, etc. Very confusing. Other than that it was a very nice run!

RunningGreat!Rocky

It's a nice loop. The second climbing section is strenuous, but short, and covered in loose rock. Otherwise its pretty even and easy. The trail is well marked except around some of the intersections which could be somewhat better indicated. Didn't get turned around though. The views are nice as well.

Took the orange/purple trail, which dead ends on a road with no clear way forward (no trespassing signs across the street) so I turned around and went back the way I came and took the white/red trail which isn’t as well marked. I found the overlook but couldn’t figure out how to get to the orange trail so I could get back to my car so I had to slide down a hill on my butt to get to it. Also super buggy and lots of cobwebs across the trail.

Get ready to hit the hills! Orange trail is very steep at some parts. Gorgeous scenic overlook about 1/4 from end of trail. Definitely a great loop.
