This was awful. Full incline all the way. The smell on the entire trail had us turn back to the car. Made me vomit. And the caves are CLOSED. It’s trespassing if anyone goes near them so keep that in mind. I’ve walked 7 mile hikes with my young kids just fine, they didn’t even finish this one once they saw the stairs. Not worth it at all.

Great hike with our young kids - short enough and with enough fun views that they didn’t even complain about the incline

we did an evening hike..easy located on Virginia side of the gap park. It is a stepping up incline not too difficult and the cave is marked. There is a wooden crossing bridge as soon as you past it.

We hiked this the first morning we were in camping in Cumberland Gap National Park Campground. Great Hike for a short morning trip. If you want to make it half day you can continue up the mountain and access numerous other trails.

Nice easy hike in the woods. Good for kids. Nice picnic area by parking. Not many people. Fully shaded.
