We really enjoyed this hike. Fortunately, another reviewer suggested getting a map from a park ranger. We wouldn’t have been able to follow the series of trails without it. Lucked into a strawberry festival in the park at the end. Nothing like a cold lemonade after a hike!

A nice trail but make sure to get the map from the park ranger before starting. There is no trail called Sky Meadow Loop rather its a bunch of trails.

Awesome park. Going up Piedmont Overlook was hard right at the beginning of the hike. I will go the other way up South Ridge next time. This will also be great for the view coming down Piedmont Overlook. Overall awesome hike.

Walked this yesterday in the snow and saw nice views of rolling hills. The section within the park is a bit short, so added a bit on the Appalachian Trail to increase the mileage. All trails are well marked. The Appalachia Trail does hook back up with the park trails, even though it is in't obvious on the alltrails map. Paid $5 using the honor system envelopes at the entrance booth to park; saw some people get ticketed for not paying, so I'd pay the fee if you stop by an no one is manning the station.
