Meadow part of trail is EASY. Climb to top of Lost Mountain is MODERATE. Scenery is wonderful, especially in meadows. Took hike on unseasonably hot day in early October with my dog. The meadow part of the hike is unshaded and was quite hot. I would recommend this trail for early- to mid-spring or mid- to late-fall for best outcome.

This is definitely not the easy trail! It’s the advanced trail! This trail is the yellow trail. In order to get to it, you have to hike a good portion of the easy blue trail (Rolling Meadows Trail). It definitely has a few places that are very picturesque but the yellow (Lost Mountain Loop Trail) is definitely challenging. 600 feet of elevation, up and down, little rocky, but nicely maintained and wide. Also, it is $5 for cars and they only take cash or check (good faith box).

This is NOT an easy trail, but it's rewarding. Lots of falling acorns and walnuts and plenty of horse manure to avoid when we were there mid-September. Beautiful views of The rolling hills of Paris, VA, which is my favorite place in northern VA.

Great Saturday morning hike with my dog. The front half of the trail loop is rolling meadows and the back half is up in the mountains with a creek running down the middle. I was the only person hiking with a few other guys mountain biking the front half. The trail is also open to horseback riding with pull thru parking for trailers. Parking is $5.
