Great trial. Did it with my mom (64) who is a very beginner hiker and not so fit. We took our time and her walking poles really helped. We did the South Ridge to the North Ridge then to the Piedmont Overlook. It ended up being about 5 miles. Lots of varied terrain. Not very rocky. This loop had gradual elevation which was better for a beginner hiker. Overall t was a wonderful hike. Beautiful overlooks and well marked trials made for a great day.
