Awesome trail

The first mile or so of the hike is on the paved green way which detracts from it being a hike in the wilderness. It’s not a bad thing but it ends up being two miles on pavement. A little to much civilization for me. It’d be a fun little walk for a family or just anyone wanting to walk for exercise.

Good exercise. Saw some interesting rock formations and several antler scrapes.

Overall a good trail with a great climb at the beginning, but toward the end there's a long section that's filled with small rocks that are easy to stumble / twist an ankle on, especially this time of year when they're hidden in the leaves.

Had views of both sides of the mountain. Great for young kids

It was pretty nice. It has a lot of beautiful views. Just if you go make sure you have cash .It costs to get in

good views. was surprised to see the observatory, didn't realize it was there.

Easy trail - kind of narrow in places

Great hike. The last 3/4 mile is more overgrown than the rest.

Rocky trail with great views whenever the trail occasionally pops out along the high line. The views are much better in fall and winter. No view from the summit. A fantastic half-day hike and great training trail.

Very rocky, not scenic at all (or very little), confusing at times---and it's $5 per person to get in the park.

Beautiful trail but very rocky!

Nice easy trail with a slight but steady incline. It was a perfect afternoon trip for me, my wife, 6 year old son and our old dog. Had a ton of rock outcroppings sand a small stream for the dog to grab a drink.

Nice steady incline! Loved going up, but not so much going down with how rocky it is you have to slow down. Don't expect any views though, this ends at a cliff on Cecil Ashburn over looking the parking lot of Blevins Gap.

although I'm rather new to hiking, this has become one of my favorite places to go. It's a bit rocky, but the scenery makes up for it

Great hike for getting the heart rate up! Trail is immediately up from start and changes to rolling, rocky trail through woods all the way to Carl T Jones where you can extend the hike by crossing the road and continuing on Bill and Marion Certain Trail, or turn back.

Rustic, quiet trail through the woods that is modestly challenging. I encountered a few mountain bikers and other occasional hikers. There are good trail markers along the way.
