Absolutely loved these beautiful trails, the natural bridge was an easy walk there.bpicked up the Hazard Cave trail and followed it around the lake and across the suspension bridge. we were the only car in the parking lot and had the trails to ourselves. A few little muddy spots but nothing to dramatic. Would certainly do these again.

This was our first time to Pickett and we loved it ! This trail didn’t disappoint . The cave was a nice place to sit and let the kids explore a little on their own within eyesight .

Did this with my toddler and loved it!

We accidentally went clockwise when we planned on going counter clockwise. I would recommend clockwise in a heart beat. It’s easy to get off on spurs you didn’t plan, so just be flexible with your day!

This trail is right in our back yard! Absolutely love the wildlife. Can be a very trafficked trial. It’s peaceful when no one else is out there just to sit in the cave and pray. It’s amazing what God has created for us!

Great loop. Fairly easy hike with a couple of moderate sections. Some areas are pretty muddy after rainfall so take choice of footwear may need to be a consideration.

We loved this trail ! Lots of beautiful plant life well maintained trails . When using the all trails map and recording our hike while following signs we still found our selves off trail according to the map. We will most definitely be going back to get lost again lol.

Found this to be a nice walk in the woods. The cave is impressive; the natural bridge is too! Well maintained with good signage. We had a lovely day to walk and lots of peace and quiet. Caught the last little bit of Mountain Laurel blooms which delighted my daughter greatly.

I wanted to start my hiking/camping second go around (it's been well over 20 years) slow and at my own pace. This trail was great and nice and easy. Great views, nice inclines and very gradual. This is a great day hike, my initial intentions were to just do Hazard Cave and when I came up on Natural Bridge trail I just went for it. This was a great decision. I will be back when there is not 6-8 inches of snow and a sheet of ice on the Natural Bridge..hahhah...
