Great hike today. Half way point we encountered half a dozen bear (moma 3-4 cubs & another solo bear just a lil further). Also saw 2 pork u pines as well. Mother bear was huge. Def be safe walkin out there. Saw signs ahead a time tho (bear prints). Def many beer cans and trash as well on the trail.

Although my bro and i only hiked out to around 4.5 miles on the Loop Trail (green blaze), the scenery at the top of the mountain was worth the 1000 feet of elevation. We set up camp (hammocks) at around 900 feet, between what looked like an old coal mine entrance. Even though we didn't see the whole trail, i would still give it a moderate rating for its steep ascents and rocky terrain.

Many different ways to do this area. Link loops, you can make this as challenging or as easy as you want. We choose the uphill battle always! This is one of our favorite trails. Many oddities along the way. Grab a top map before you go.

Awesome trail! Just found this very close to home and hiked from the green to the blue and then down the brown back to the car. Very well marked trails. It was a pretty intense climb up to the top and the view was amazing. Definitely returning, so so much to see out there.

Trail is mostly used for ATVs. Some broken glass and beer cans on trail. I've been there a few times and haven't ran into any other hikers. It does have a wonderful view when you get to the top off the hill.
