So grown up we had to turn around before making it to the top. Challenging hike, though, if that's what you're looking for. Offers almost no views. There is pretty spot early on that crosses a stream, which the dogs enjoyed. I wouldn't do it again, but I definitely got a workout in.

Trail is a bit overgrown. Not much to see on it. At least you'll get some exercise.

Good, steep hike. Not the best maintained but it's doable. Can access stamping ridge and Unaka mountain from this trailhead.

Fairly strenuous hike straight up unaka mountain. Beautiful views of the balds up top though. Would definately reccomend.

I took this hike thinking it would be a moderate 3.2 mile hike. Found out it has an elevation gain around 1,200 feet, so you're climbing up the majority of the hike. This is one way and the trail ends before the top but the top has amazing views. So if you go to the top it's a 7 mile hike total.

It started off sunny at 60 degrees and turned rainy and temps dropped to the 40s when I got to the trail end.
