This trail is not hard at all. There are a few steep and rocky parts but it was easy enough for my kids all under 8 years old.

We started on the Copper Mine Trail (red) to the A.T. then took Kaiser Trail (Blue) back down.

Some interesting old stone structures, geological features, small waterfalls, and a few vistas along the A.T. Overall it was fun for the kids especially when we surprised a timber rattlesnake.

The trails are well maintained and well blazed. There were at least a dozen other people here on a Sunday in September. Also several dogs off their leashes. Hardly any litter and lots of parking at the trailhead on Old Mine Road.

The green trail was difficult to find at first, but a great hike once you found the trail. Super steep!

Try to go on this hike middle of September , 14,15,16,17, there will be the scientists up there doing the migrating raptor count it's very cool!

Great hike. Only a few people, not that I have a problem with people, and no highway noise! The dogs loved it! The views are so so.

The gorge makes the hike worth it. Overlook is okay.

great hike. not to heavy on the beginning. if you choose to take the Coopermine Trail loop which is beautiful with waterfalls, that will work your legs. Heaviest 1.3miles part, but so worth it.
