It’s a bit out of the way, but on a sunny day this trail is probably my favorite so far in the Blue Ridge. I prefer counterclockwise (the fields and views seem like a nice goal for the backwoods climb). The cows are always a treat.

This is the second time my group of friends have hiked this trail. It is based and relatively easy. There are nice views and great wooded scenery also. You can add on and hike around Rocky Knob.

Fairly easy hike. Brought my dog, who had no problems scaling the cattle fence ladders. The trail is not well marked once you enter the cow pasture. Great scenery & not too strenuous.

We had a great time hiking this trail today! Started late - after 5p - and went clockwise at ranger’s suggestion. It was perfect! We ended with shady wooded terrain - a little steep in places - but manageable. Lots of wild blackberries and we crossed a small creek near the end. Had to dodge a few cow patties but otherwise a great hike!

One of our favorites. Not too hard, not too easy. Goes through the woods and across the highway and over some cow fields, so the variety of scenery was great. Saw some cool wildlife too. Definitely recommend!

Nice hike, moderate distance, moderately strenuous, great views, very windy and pretty cool this morning, no evidence of recent bad weather. will do this again. Info station volunteers were great! When you’ve finished your hike done a few miles down the parkway at Mabry Mill. Great food!
