Take in spectacular views along the Pond Run Circuit in George Washington National Forest. The trail is steep and rough at times so this is only for experienced hikers. From its start on Waites Run, this circuit climbs some 1300+ feet at times on a steep and rough footway, for about 2 miles along Pond Run. Then the trail takes a side trip to an old fire tower site on Halfmoon Lookout where the views are nothing short of spectacular!

Great trail! Went out on St. Patrick’s day for an overnight trip. Saw a good amount of people. Great hike to get some elevation without super strenuous uphills. Excited to come back and do this again.

A very nice hike. Too many stream crossings too count. Those crossings are fun and not hard to do (in the winter at least).
