This is one of favorite easy trails.

Very nice hike. Muddy today, but not too hard. The arch is worth the walk.

This is a beautiful trail following along a creek, super easy to do. It was a bit muddy at times, but it wasn't a big deal.

Gorgeous views from the top.

Tough trail and a good workout, if that’s what you looking for. Would not recommend for a casual hike.

Scouted it for horses and it's nice hike but not currently really horse friendly, tree down at the apex that's a little low to ride under and hard to get around. Some areas with bad root holes to watch out for if on horseback. Would be great for a trail run.

Beautiful hike as the leaves are changing. Long enough and short enough. Went with a group, took just under 2 hours.

The welcome center has this trail listed as 2.5 miles at most, so I wasn’t sure what to add in to get to the length others experienced. Path was always easy to follow- took the Yost ridge trail to the Coral Ridge Loop, then back to the welcome center. Went in early November, foliage was beautiful and trail wasn’t very muddy yet. Little bit of elevation, but an easy go overall.

Great easy pace walk with the hound. Beautiful outlook area and view.

Gorgeous hike, love this trail out of all others at Jefferson Memorial Forest. I always take the right hand fork at the beginning of the trail. A steep ascent but comes to a stunning overlook.

Does anyone know if there are any accessible trails for a Wheelchair?

Very nice trail ! View was awesome !

Nice trail, beautiful view!

A really nice way up to Natural Bridge. A more gradual climb while working your way around the ridge.

The trail was super muddy but it was right along side the creek which is nice. The arch was somewhat underwhelming.

nice trail, gave us a little work out. we went counter clock wise and came out through stlitstone.

Short but I'd consider it hard and not moderate. The inclines were pretty steep, although they did have tree roots as makeshift steps. I'll do it again but be better prepared next time!

Loved it! It is a very beautiful place!

Always a fun and beautiful hike, excellent view at the top over looking the ohio river.

It’s a good hike. If you want to add to it, you can add 3 miles by adding Scott’s Gap.

We done this trail twice last weekend for training. There were two picnic tables but no restrooms.

Beautiful hike. Not nearly as trafficked as some others. Was nice and secluded. Beautiful wooded scenery. The upper hood loop has some downed trees still but not impossible. Rock garden was gorgeous. Loved it

Beautiful easy hike. Was muddy but worth it

Beautiful views. Great hike.

A nice wide flat trail to walk on with the family. Lots of amenities including (but not limited to) picnic tables, soccer fields, port-a-potties, covered picnic tables, and a nice fitness area.
