Very well maintained shady trail. It was a steady but not too steep incline with incredible views at the top!

(You probably won't have cell service to check your map or check-in until you get high enough.)

Very nice hike. We started lower, taking a stroll along the creek and up the fire road before meeting with the white oak trail, then made a loop. It was supposed to be around an 11 mile hike, but we didn't verify and it only took us 4 hours so I'm not sure that's accurate, but it was very challenging, fun, and rewarding.

Beautiful ridge top view from shelter

This trail was nice. Leisurely ascent and great views. A lovely shelter at the ridge allows you to view five counties in Virginia and West Virginia. It snowed while I was hiking which made the day even more beautiful. Trail is easily identifiable and well-worn. Park itself offers cabins and campsites as well as playgrounds and horseriding. Great family spot. I'll be back to this place.
