Pretty well maintained trail meanders above creek.

Great trail , two really great views , colorful !

It was a perfect day for spending a few hours on the trail. The little bridge over the tree roots was creative.

easy and great short hike!

Amazing views! I got stung by a yellow jacket but it was no big deal. Totally worth it;)

Very nice hike when combined with Preachers rock.

Trail is in great condition! Beautiful overlook, and as other reviews have said, lots of hills coming back! Marked well.

Great hike with two beautiful overlooks (great place to stop and take pictures)! Trail is in great condition. It is a little hilly coming back but overall a great hike!

This part of the Appalachian seemed well traveled and was well marked and has two great outlook areas that are top shelf. Wife and I hiked it out and back with no problems. all the steep areas are stepped with rocks so it was easy both up and down. would do it again.

Great little hike. Most of it is easy but about 1/4 mile is uphill. Nice camping spots along the trail!

I bagged Coosa Bald and Slaughter Mountain starting from WolfPen Gap on the Duncan Ridge Trail. Both of these mountains are on the GA 4000 Challenge. I did Coosa Bald out and back from Wolfpen Gap (heading north on the trail) on State Road 180. Then I did Slaughter from the Gap south. Duncan Ridge goes right over the top of Coosa Bald and the USGS Benchmark is easy to find. Duncan Ridge does NOT go over the summit of Slaughter. You have to leave the trail and bushwhack to the summit. If you follow the ridge line that runs north toward Duncan Ridge the summit is only about 300 to 400 yards off the trail. You would think it is an easy bushwhack. In August it is not. There is no a herd path to the top, at least not one that I could find. The top of Slaughter is covered with undergrowth (ferns, weeds and wait-a-minute vines with stickers) as much as chest high. When you get to the top of Slaughter there is nothing to see (in August). I stood on an pile of boulder (the highest point) but could find no Benchmark...perhaps in the winter one could be found. Recommend long pants for Slaughter.

My 2 and 4 year old did it no problem, a bit over grown and quite a few trees down though.

Fun trail with a great water source at Gooch shelter.

We stated this section with car camping at Woody. Nice views!

2/27/18: It was not as impressive as Big Cedar Mountain but still fun.

Pretty dope trail. Super easy. Amazing view!

Nice hike with different types of forest. Very little traffic - I’ve hiked twice in Dec the past two years and have yet to see another hiker. Mill Shoals Trail seems to be the steeper ascent, so you can choose you level of difficulty to a degree. There is notice from the Ranger station (Dec 2017) that Yellow Mountain trail is closed between Addie Gap and Shope Gap trail. There are a lot of recent downed trees that have been cleared, but we found the trail passable from west to the log bridge over Bryant Creek. The log bridge is in disrepair and while still standing, is probably not safe passage. As long as you are willing to forego the last 0.5 mi to Addie Gap turnaround, this is still a nice day hike..

Hiked this the day after it snowed. Beautiful hike with great views!

Easy hike. I used this trail to connect from Coosa Back Country to Duncan and over to the AT

Been a few times now. Little bit of something for everyone. First 3/4 mile gentle easy hike then next 1/4 mile tough uphill for most. Great overlook approximately a mile from woody gap.

This trail was very pretty during the autumn when I hiked it, it leads to a large flat rocked area with a beautiful view. Wasn't a very hard hike either

preachers rock overlook was great, the rest was so so... Great hike with fur babies or older kids though

We hiked through a ton of fog...Hurricaine Nate is on the way. It was eerie and really beautiful. Trail was in great shape--some downed trees had been recently cut. As of October 7, 2017--no fall color yet. Maybe 2 weekends for the peak?

Nice hike with two good overlooks. All uphill coming back from the gap. Limited parking as well.

Trail walking conditions are good, average roots and rocks with several flat stretches. Nice view at top of ramrock.

Hiked this one yesterday and loved every step! The wildflowers were blooming, delicate waterfalls crossed the paths and there were several great spots for viewing the vistas. We hiked 3 miles in and saw TWO BLACK BEARS!! One was running away from us - must have spooked him and the other was sitting in the brush about 60 feet off the trail watching our every move. Not aggressive but we didn't stay around long enough to find out.

Easy and scenic

Super easy, didn't realize we were hiking a mountain until we were steps from the summit

Lots of nice through hikers. Beautiful view. Cooked lunch at the top where there is a fire pit available.
