It was very foggy when we went,m so there was not much of a view at the top, but through the woods was gorgeous.

Nice little hike to a valley at the summit. View from the top is nice, lots of butterflies and wild flowers (not sure when peak bloom is). Good hike for all skill levels.

Hiked on 16 July 2017. Nice hike to summit. On way back down encountered a very large adult black bear accompanied by a juvenile black bear about 50 yards before trail left the woods and opened into the meadow above parking area.

We had a pleasant hike from the Beagle Gap parking lot at MP 99.5 to the summit of calf mountain. There were port-o-pots at the parking area. The trail starts in a meadow area, with remnants of an old apple orchard, and the heads into the woods. There is a good view to the east at the top.

This is a great trail for families and children. The grade is gradual and trail offers decent views of Beagle Gap. We hiked late winter and while the weather was fantastic the trail was very muddy. It is a well-worn path due to the amount of traffic and tends to be more like a swamp in some spots. The summit was not rocky like most of the Shenandoah NP summits. It was more like a large meadow. It was perfect for letting the kids run and explore. Would make a great picnic spot. We will hike this one again in the future.

Great spot for a quick lunch or a hike to the Meadow to study.
