This is a good spot for a day hike. Volunteers maintain the trail quite well and the hike itself is not very strenuous. The wide-leafed flora that runs along the stream section of the trail will transport your mind out of Virginia and into a land that looks much more like that of Jurassic Park. There is also parking available at the start of the trail.

Rock climbers - there are places to climb at the escarpment towards the end of the trail. Additionally, there should be a few faces where bouldering is possible.

Camping is also great up on top of the cliff area. The Camp area is relatively small but features a stone ring, ample space for a few tents, and rocky outcrops with a view. Without very much light pollution, this site also makes for great stargazing on clear nights.
