Note the tower is only open on the weekends during certain hours. Great hike but at times was little confusing with blasts.

Be on your toes, in particular on the western portion of the loop around mile 6. There is an intersecting trail to the campground that might confuse some hikers as orange blazes are kinda heading in all directions.

Super easy. Go for the overlook, and take the trail along the cliff.

Beautiful backcountry campsites with great views in the winter. Very difficult to drive tent stakes on a few sites due to rocks and tree roots. Better to have a stand alone tent. There are some rocky portions of the trail and a few water crossings. Some changes in elevation will make you work hard.

It’s easy if you hiking every week. The view is beautiful and there is a lot of history on this trail

Hiked this trail many times. Terrain varies from rocky to dirt. Hiked after raining all day the day before and not much mud. Very overcast so no views today.

Beautiful, shaded trail around the lake. The rolling hills on the trail are a nice change of pace without being too challenging. We saw turkeys on the drive to/from the trail and birds and squirrels while on the trail.

Trail was over grown in some spots but a nice cool day here.

My son (in my backpack) and I hiked this trail on 10/14/19. There was some water in the creek, but no "waterfall" by any means. The trail is well-marked by blazes, and I can see why some reviewers mentioned that there are some more challenging sections. You do have to go over some rocky inclines, but given that it's such a short trail (exactly 0.5 mile by my GPS yesterday), it's not a difficult trail by any means. I'm sure it's beautiful when the waterfall is flowing! We only saw 3 other people on the trail in the middle of the day.

We completed this trail, or some variation, on 10/14/19. I carried my kid in a backpack the whole route, and it wasn't strenuous. The view is pretty from the Overlook and the Tower. The trail is well-maintained, a little narrow in some parts, but the yellow blazes were frequent and visible. Several trails converge multiple times in this area, but they're all pretty short and will pretty much take you back to where you started. We did the trail marked by signs that said "North Face Loop," but it wasn't very clearly marked on the park map. You can see a good distance through the forest that's starting to thin out a little as it's losing leaves.

We visited on 10/14/19. The trail was well-maintained, wide, and easy to follow. It's mostly crushed gravel--very few roots/rocks/impediments. Of all the trails we did at Fort Mountain Park, this was definitely the easiest. The lake is nice, and there are multiple places around it to have a picnic.

This trail was definitely worth doing. It was rocky with lots of roots. It starts with a bunch of stairs going up to the tower and stairs going down to the overlook, but the north trail back is amazing...didn't pass a single soul on the North trail! we will be back

Very little water sources. Recommend trekking poles as there are lots of roots and rocks to deal with. Recorded 5.3 miles.

I had planned on doing the inner loop that was 5.8 miles but mid read the recording and started out on the main trail. We just decided to do the whole thing. It’s a great one and we walked away tired and spent and felt like we did something. Trails are clear and the over looks are beautiful.

beautiful lake views

this was a nice, quick, hike. I wish I had known it was in a park that required a parking fee. the waterfall was nonexistent when we were there two days ago. we also did the lake trail at the same time which was also a nice hike. as we entered and paid the fee we got a map that showed other teams in the park but we did not have time to check them out.

Easy hike. Lakeside view for 90% of this trail. Also a great camping spot!

well cleared, well blazed, absolutely beautiful. Trekking poles would be useful in areas, great up and downs, and made us put some work in. The little spurs off are great to up your miles, and if you need a break they offer that as well. We will definitely be back to play on this trail more.

Ran this morning, 80% is cleared, and the other is slightly grown up. Getting ready for spartan race series and this was a excellent choice. Lots of challenges with the elevation change. Toke us 1:55:00 and clocked 8.63 miles but we missed the trail once and doubled back.

Great hike that offers a challenge, as well as awesome views. Love this trail.

Great hike!!

Did the Gahuti Loop trail - 90 degrees but a breeze was blowing. Beautiful views from overlooks.

Didn’t do the whole trail due to my back was bothering me. What we did was great. Completed about half of the trail. It has some challenging inclines. A pretty rocky trail so you have to watch your step. The part we did didn’t have any views. It had been dry for a while and the creeks were dried up. I’m sure in the spring probably a prettier hike. Hope to do the rest in a couple of days.

Great view at the overlook. The steps to the tower are pretty strenuous. You may want to take an alternate route to the tower if you have bad knees, back, heart, etc. The overlook is the high point of the trail to me.
