I lived this trail! There’s an incline so you get a good workout but it’s not so steep as to be discouraging. Well maintained path with stepping stones through the muddy sections. Cute little stream near the start if you want to let your puppers splash around. A few geocaches new the first section. I took the trail to the right/East and only went as far as the switchback because my dog is recovering from an injury. Beautiful trail. Definitely want to come back again. There were 5-10 cars in the lot when I started and finished.

This is a pretty challenging trail that has two different elevation climbs, no matter which direction you walk. Very little traffic which was nice. The trail went back and forth between a regular trail and rock steps in some parts. A different time of year would have yielded better views.

This trail is very well marked, but NOT a loop. It is in and back. So you hike up each side of the mountain and down each side. Hiking boots are recommend since it is very rocky and you dont want to twist and ankle. There are not many other people on the trail. I only saw 2 when I was there on a beautiful weekend.

I didn’t hike the whole trail due to time constraints but I would recommend this trail, I would like to come back and do the whole thing. It is very clearly marked the whole time. The elevation is steady but it makes for a good workout. Due to the leaves on the ground and the recent rain it was a little slippery on the way down but nothing ridiculous just be mindful of it. It also connects to the whitetail trail which I hiked for a bit.

Didnt do the whole trail, obviously by my recording, but enjoyed the workout we got from the mile we did up to the ridge. Trail was marked clearly and had no issues following the signs! Great spot for a quick hike or to do the longer trail!

This is a beautiful trail with stone pathways and nice options for ascending/descending. We did just the first loop and the total was 5.4 miles. Beautiful, quiet and a new favorite.

Nice, well-kept trail. Very quite too. Decent amount of rocks and just enough ups and downs to make it a challenge. A little bit buggy but that’s in August. Would recommend using the map for the upper loop; there are a dozen or so crossing trials for the middle 3 miles of the hike that are confusing to distinguish between. The upper loop meets up with the Joseph E. Ibberson Conservation Area, another parking lot with bathrooms.

Some gradual climbing then down then up then down again so overall a very comfortable variety. This is not an overgrown trail and is well marked. It does cross over the AT a couple of times, we decided not to do the upper loop and just circled back down to the parking lot but with complete the entire 5 miles in the near future. I would rate it a 4.5 stars since it is so pretty but very rocky.

Easy parking. Well-blazed trails. There are a few crossing trails/options, will be back to explore more. Definitely buggy in spots, but it’s July so that’s to be expected. Fairly steep ascent/descent. Not technical, but not a walk in the park either. You could also start at Ibberson and do the same loops.

Awesome hike! No lookouts but the hiking is solid and relatively easy. Not overgrown at all which was surprising for June. Will be back here!

Beautiful views, a difficult ascent, some of the rock steps were a bit high for a petite hiker. Hiking poles are recommended. Converging trails with similar colors were a bit confusing, but we figured it out and emerged about 4 1/2 hours later.

Really enjoyed this trail. Didn't make it all the way but instead cut across the top half of the "8". There are a lot of intersecting trails that aren't on the this map, so that was confusing. But we winged it and it worked out. We ended up doing 5.5 miles and it took us 3 hours of pretty leisurely hiking. There are a lot of uphills but it's not difficult - mostly stone stairs.
