Nice, easy out and back trail. Along the way you can see and old, abandon, sealed coal mine ad a slag pile dam. I think it is close to 1.5 miles out and back not the 2.5 miles in the description.

We take this trail with our two year old in a toddler pack. He really enjoys getting out and playing in the creek at the beginning of the trail. It connects to a bike trail on the way back and you can walk onto the alligator trail from there. This trail is very woodsy and quiet. It is also a popular trail with a lot of foot traffic so I feel quite safe.

Nice trail, not too hard but beautiful. We picked up mossy rock trail up to the ridge road. Then walked the ridge to alligator rock trail followed back down to the parking lot. About 3 1/2 miles total. A few trees down on the last stretch.

Great for those starting, have health issues, older folks or you children or just a easy stroll through the woods.

This is one of my favorite low key walk in the woods type hike with lots of points of interest - but it's not 2.5 miles. It's 3/4 mile out.
