Hiked the trail this week. The upper/southern end of the trail on the map (the part that angles around the 1476ft peak) is no longer accessible. A new privacy fence has been installed adjacent to the cellphone tower. This fence eliminates about 3/10 of a mile from the trail.

Steep in the beginning but a very easy path for trail running, well maintained!

Easy hike with nice views.

Very well maintained and heavily used trail. One incline at the beginning but smooth after getting to the ridge. We hiked to the tower and then down Varnedoe back to the trailhead. Great trip for us.

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.

a great run, less crowded than the West side of the trails

easy, great for kids and the staff is very welcoming and kind. very clean too

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.
