This trail would be a 5/5 if it had more viewpoints, which are lacking.

Participated in the 'Iron Will Hike' sponsored by the Cumberland Gap National Park, lead by trail guide David Earles. It was a great experience and a great trail. While it was a little challenging, a lot of hill climbing, there wasn't anything that required to difficult.

The trail crosses the Kentucky/Virginia border several times. It was cold and rainy on the day we went but it was worth it.

Nice easy hike in the woods. Good for kids. You can go much further on this trail and others that hook up to it. Fully wooded and shaded.

Nice easy to follow trail. Some elevation changes but not bad. Couple beautiful photo spots. I like them at least as much as the Pinnacle Overlook. We went out around 2 miles out and returned the same way.
