star was nice but would've rather driven.

The view at the top where the star is located is cool but the actual trail is just boring. So many rocks. Just wasn’t a fan. I would still recommend. But driving to the star would be fine too.

It was beautiful this morning as I hiked this trail. My only suggestion is to be careful of the loose stones and just enjoy!

Great trail, you just have to be careful on the loose rocks on the upper half. Going up isn't too bad but they make things a little treacherous on the way down.

Great view at the top. Totally doable with our 12 year old kids and medium size dog.

Good trail. All downhill then all up hill. Would be tough for those that are out of shape.

Impressed by the people who ran up it! Enjoyed the relatively easy hill climb up to a great view

The trail is fun but the upper half is almost solely loose rocks. It's a beautiful view from the top though.

Very enjoyable trail. We had perfect weather. Pretty much uphill the whole way, but the hike back was fast and fun. View at the star is fantastic. If you live near Roanoke, you need to do this trail!

It was good. The Webelos hiked as part of their Webelos Walkabout Requirement, while serving in a leadership role, and completing a service project!
