Tough trail in spots, but worth the climb. Will come here again.

This one will give you a challenge from the start racking the switchbacks you to Cow Rock. You get a little bit of a reprieve for a little while before it gets challenging again heading up to Wolf Laurel. This is one of my favorite hikes in the area. The overlooks are just beautiful and the challenge of it makes you feel accomplished when you are done. The trail is well maintained. Be aware that is can be rocky with plenty of tree roots in places, so watch your step. I saw maybe a dozen other people out enjoying by this stretch of trial today.

Hiked today with our three kids, 13, 11, 9 years old and a dog. It was a strenuous hike up for sure, know your limits and take breaks. The view up top is amazing and worth the hike. It took us 75 minutes up and 30 down. We never stopped on the way back. Check out Yonah Burger after your hike, you’ll have earned it.

We really enjoyed this trail. Rocky and steep in the beginning, nice views along the way. Cow Rock is a great place to sit and enjoy the view. Took our Mini Aussie and she loved it too. A bit of ice on the rocks this morning but not treacherous. Would hike this again.

11/9/19: Great trail, mostly rocky terrain with a few muddy spots- good footwear is needed. Very busy. Steady incline, moderate difficulty lots of scenic views and excellent visibility of surrounding areas from the top (it was a clear day).

11/3/19: hiked this Trail and then on to Wolf Laurel after stopping at Cow Rock. Loved the views at Cow Rock. Great place to sit & enjoy the view. Amazed at how many dogs on this trail (not a bad thing, just an observation). Trail was rocky but manageable. Couple great camping spots beyond Cow Rock. Will hike this again. Enjoyed it!

Very well maintained trial and did not see one piece of garbage lying around anywhere. Lots of folks out enjoying this beautiful day. It’ll bring the burn on the way up but the views are worth it and the trip down is MUCH easier.

Your not joking. Plenty of negotiating through the rocks, tree roots up and back with Great view... the flats don’t last long. Final reward a Pumpkin Spice beer at Tantrum Brewing on Helen Highway.

A tough trail to do in the rain!

Beautiful trail with awesome top views. The elevation gives it the rating of hard, but being it is about 5 miles it does not feel like some others that share that rating. The only reason I gave 4 stars is it is crowded. Really takes the serenity of the beauty away....

trail was a bit hard to follow at times. was useful/necessary using the map feature for a first timer

Rocky but manageable. Definitely worth the time, it was a cloudy damp day and the clouds added to the spectacular vistas.
