This was the perfect hike after doing the 12 mile kayak trip down the South Branch of the Potomac. Saw a fawn off the trail which was cool. I wore shorts, had no issues. Trials were friendly to my knees.

Nothing complicated about this trail but be cognizant in certain areas so you do not get lost. Well-marked overall and nothing too challenging here. I would no recommend wearing shorts. Trekking poles help in many areas.

The trail is easy in terms of elevation and length, but it’s a good thing that the Eagle Scouts blazed the trail. There is no cleared trail — I freestyled from blaze to blaze. Long pants and boots recommended.
