Great trail and tribute to the fire fighters. plaques along the trail for each of th 19 young men.

I love this trail. It is extremely dog friendly, there are dog bag stations and trash cans located along the hike. The views are great. Parking is easy because there are several different places to access the trail and parking is free.

I don't known I would consider this a "trail." Spend the admission fee to explore the battleship, submarine and hanger. Well worth it. Tons of photo opportunities while learning about the US Navy and the role the battleship and submarine played in WWII. Many of the aircrafts in the hanger were on loan from the Pensacola Naval Air Mueseum so I am sure these are always changing so you will not likely see all the same artifacts and aircrafts every time. The only reason I did not give tgis 5 stars is because this was not a true trail to me and the real fun starts after paying for admission.

Definitely better trail than the one on the KY Side. Parking is much better. Have plenty of water in the winter because the spigot in Hensley Settlement is turned off after Nov 1st. Martins Fork cabin on top of Gibson Gap has running water nearby it and is easily access from the trail on top of the ridge.

Great trail. Major elevation gains in the end. The views from White Rocks are amazing and the Sand Cave is awesome. Definitely worth the leg burner hike!

Great trail and history. Old site of a mineral spring resort from late 1800s and early 1900s. Ppl believed the water had healing powers and came from all over to drink and bath in them.

I love this trail! It is a daily walk for me and my puppy. If you are walking your dog be cautious of people who let there dogs off leash on this trail. I see this almost daily.

really rough road to get there

Loved the rocky uphill! I wouldn't say it's "easy", maybe moderate and not toddler/baby friendly unless you plan on carrying him/her which would also make an awesome workout. I'd like to do this hike again at sunset to take a slow-shutter photo of the landscape, very nice views from the top. Parking is also not a problem. Overall 2 thumbs up!

It was a difficult trail but every steps we took worth the spectacular view.

Short trail but steep and rocky! AKA Wisdom Tree. There’s a spectacular view from the top, with a Tree and a Flag ( take pics) there is also notebooks to write in under the Tree. I don’t recommend kids. Dogs maybe but please pick up the poop!

Did Baldy via backbone on Sunday (1/15/18). Made it to summit via backbone without crampons but highly recommend them. Still plenty of snow above 8,000 feet. Came down ski hut and more snow on that side. Bring crampons or spikes. Wish I had brought my dog. He would’ve been fine. Be safe.

The spring and pool is a unique feature to the landscape. The inscriptions and hieroglyphs are very well preserved. This is a destination hike. While there the Headland hike is a must.

Not much of a workout as far as elevation gain goes but by far my favorite walk in the woods I've taken in along time. Beautiful forest views with cool defunct railroad gear. Bring a flashlight, the tunnel is dark and creepy.

We have hiked these trails year round and always a pleasure to be there. If damp under foot trekking poles can be helpful on slippery steep areas

Fun easy hike. Several areas to climb onto another trail and explore.
