I start the trail from the Wilderness Rd Campground. The trailhead for Lewis Hollow Trail located at the entrance to the ground on the left. The trail started out good then turned steep and rocky. THE CAVE IS CLOSED DUE TO WHITE NOSE SYNDROME.

Uphill all the way. Not much to see other than the cave.

Fun, short hike with an interesting cave at the end. Also has a nice stream with a small waterfall by the cave if there is enough water and some interesting rock features.. The trail continues on, but we turned back after the cave. As the reviews state, it is an incline, but its nothing dramatic. Just your average hike through the foothills of Appalachia.

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.
