Definitely not easy. I would rate this trail as moderate due to the pretty steady incline up.

Great trail with a beautiful and spacious overlook- even on “busy” days. Besides the heat and humidity today, my son and I really enjoyed this trail!

Not necessarily "easy". Saw a couple of copperheads. Biggest complaint were the other hikers leaving behind their trash. Beautiful view.

Rocky in some spots, relatively easy trail. Heavily trafficked and narrow. Beautiful view. Remember trail etiquette. Don't lounge on the rocks at the view with your group.

Great trail and I’m sure wonderful view but I would not rate this as an easy hike. I count “easy” as something you could take a toddler on and or a pregnant woman could do. (We had both) We tried it out, but lots of rocks and fairly steep. Coming back after baby is born.

There is free parking across the street which is amazing if you just want to check these cliffs out. The trail can be very muddy after a good rain, however, a lot of it is just rocks. Easy climb to the top and easy to get out to the furthest rock to see the view!

Great trail! Thankful for the shelter for a bit to get out of the rain:)

The beginning uphill was a little rough but the view is totally worth it!

Amazing hike

Beautiful hike with a great view at the top!

This was a nice short trail with some decent inclines and switchbacks. The trailhead itself isn’t too well marked, though. From the parking lot, turn right and walk up the road a bit and you’ll see the white blazes of the Appalachian trail on the left. Great views at the top, comparable to some of the longer trails in the area!

This was a tougher trail for us. Though it was short, the incline and switchbacks made it a good workout. Today was also too hot.

By far my best local hike! The view at the top is worth every bit of incline! Pack a picnic in your backpack and relax on the cliffs!

Easy trail. Switchbacks and sometimes a little steep. Make sure to bring water and a little snack to enjoy at the top while you sit back and enjoy the view. Going back is obviously easy as it’s pretty much all down hill.
Just be sure to wear some good hiking boots or a shoe with good traction as there is a lot of rocks on the trail.
I also recommend this trail for some trail running.
Best to go on a weekday.

A fun hike to the top. Make sure you pack water! Moderately difficult, pretty much straight up thru switch backs. Easy to complete if you only have a couple hours. Lovely view at the top, look for bald eagles! Best times to go are first thing in morning or from 4-7pm on a weekday.

Was in Boy Scouts loved doing this trail always was very pleasant.

Steep hike at first but a really beautiful view. Lots of rocks so go when it’s not raining.

That initial climb up to the top is pretty tough, but certainly possible! The view is more than worth it once you get up there. The rest of the trail north is pretty flat and boring, so i'd just go see the amazing cliffs and maybe walk an extra mile if you're feeling it.
