Very pleasant wooden hike. Trail is well defined and well marked up until the creek (4.5 miles from Tool Hill trail head). The trail does continue after the creek, but I did lose it after a bit. No big vistas or epic views, not strenuous. Nice way to spend some time.

This is a wonderful wilderness area not far from the Triad. Multiple established campsites and a couple streams. The only downfall was when I came in September the streams weren't flowing they just had puddles enough to collect water and for the dog to drink but it was in a flowing creek. Beautiful area well worth the trip for an overnight camp

12 mile loop. So many spiders hitting you in the face due to narrow trail at points. One downed tree was difficult to maneuver under. A good challenge, and I'm glad I did it, but this is not a hike I'd do again. Or maybe just not in July. Did not see big foot, but if he exists, he would definitely live here. Saw a turtle, though.

Nice trail. Uphill but not strenuous. We bring our GSD here a lot. Never crowded. It also connects to another trail if you want to walk more. Great last minute short hike.

Had an amazing time backpacking with friends. Went in early spring, and brought our dog along for the trip. Found an awesome camping spot along a small creek, and were able to set up hammocks, tents, and have a great campfire while only seeing 5 people throughout the entire trip. Our dog had a great time as well. Highly recommend, and will be back!!

The trailhead was a little difficult to find and some blazes were missing throughout the trail, but it was a challenging hike with some great scenery!

Nice there and back trail at the NC Zoo. It's well marked and a fairly easy hike. The trail is just a little shy of a mile up the mountain. It is all uphill but it's not too strenuous. The view at the top is fair, there lot's of trees so it's a little difficult to gauge. There's a sign at the summit though that says they will be building an observation tower....now that's going to be awesome!

nice trail and easy hike, would be better if the trails looped together for a longer hike

awesome zoo, great day with the family.

Great trail for a day hike with the family. There are some small elevation changes but nothing too drastic. You can connect with other trails off this one to make a loop or you can do a down and back.

Great workout for beginners.
