Made an account to review this. If you want a peaceful walk, this is not the place. The majority of the people there were bikers. There are so many that you must constantly be aware of and dodge. My dog almost got ran over by a biker. They come out of nowhere going 30mph (I have no idea how fast bikes go - but ya, fast). There are sections that are so narrow, you simply cannot move out of the way. I don't know how this is considered safe. Just make it a bike trail. It's also incredibly rocky and uneven. Though there are sections that are not rocky. My little dog was likely uncomfortable. Oh, don't get me started on the signs. They are awful.

Nice wooded trail offering plenty of shade. There were some spots with decent inclines. Need to pay attention to footing so as not to trip over exposed roots or rocks. Wonderful scenic view at the top.

Nice trail with phenomenal views. No dogs allowed though (probably for good reason - viewpoint could be hairy given drop off... hehe )

nice trail good with kids. nice view at the end of it

Nice trail. It takes about 1.5 hours to reach observation deck and back. Steep.

great trial for mountain biking or hiking a lot of roots so a bit challenging, make sure you know what you do before hitting this trial with bikes.

Awesome trail. I ride this trail once a week on my mountain bike. I do recommend a good mountain bike, not a cheap Walmart one... Also, Wouldn’t call this trail completely easy since I’m new to off roading / mountain biking. I don’t feel comfortable taking my 8 year old daughter there yet...maybe when she’s 10-12 years old? Overall, watch out for the roots and pedestrians. One of those could get you hurt specially since the trail has a few narrow paths.

Heavily wooded, easy tracks and great views

Good trail, but pretty much not any access to the water really and difficult to even see it most of the time. Not sure where that beautiful waterfall is that someone posted a picture of. Trail was well marked and appropriate difficulty. The scenery was beautiful and not too many visitors. Nice time with my family, but my legs will be hurting tomorrow! :)

Extremely easy hike with a great view at the end. I would do this hike after 12 hour night shifts with no problem. The lookout deck shows you what mountains you’re looking at in the Blue Ridge and the Indian Seats are a neat little place to sit and enjoy the view. Very heavily trafficked. The only time I’ve never seen other people in during storms.

Really nice trail, have to watch where you are going there are lots of tiny trails that can lead you off path. Beautiful views

Beautiful view, hard to follow trail. Rough with lots of rocks and roots and not clear directions with lots of little shortcut trails... was confusing and we got off the main trail. Had a great time though.

A very nice place to go hiking

Fairly easy trail....views at the top are beautiful...we added to this hike and probably ended up doing 6 miles by doing the second loop....beautiful and peaceful the whole time. Hiking in Tuesday....not crowded....nice!

Wonderful trail with some good ups and downs to work the legs. Just pay attention to what day you are there so you know which direction you should go to avoid having the bikers come up behind you.

Nice park. Trails alternate-day use between hikers and bikers. Trails include "hills" which may be for the bike riders. Trail goes toward & around lake. From parking lot near restrooms, cross over entrance road into woods. Rocky trail, good amount of tree roots, many switchbacks. Use AllTrails app to check your bearings; signs are not always accurate, trails not well marked.

Crowded but great hike with a steady and manageable elevation gain. Great views at the top.

Easy mountain bike trail, easy drops and climbs

Kick my ass. I’m a beginner. Lol

Great view about a mile in. Fairly popular

This is an OK trail on a weekday, but it’s crowded on weekends. Lots of people getting in the creek / falls. The facilities are nice, but don’t expect a long hike out here, as the park butts up against private property that fences the creek / rapids off downstream before you get too far. Otherwise a nice place to walk, take pictures on the covered bridge, have a family picnic, etc.

Went at 9:00 on a Sunday morning. Hike took a little over an hour. Trail was crowded by 10:00. Lots of people using it for fitness/running. Beautiful trail and a good hike for kids and families, not good if you want a quiet contemplative hike.

Nice trail. It was a little muddy in spots but not terrible. A lot of switchbacking. Windy trails -great for the bikers.
