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.

This was a great hike on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon in February..next time I will take it slower to enjoy more of the beautiful scenery.. this first hike was more for time

I just relocated to NC and have been on this trail a few times already. I love that you don't have to go too far before you get the quiet nature. Beautiful hike and the trail is well marked. I'll be doing this one more in the future. Watch out for the falling acorns. :-)

Enjoyed roughing it on Moonshine Hill. Perfect way to spend a glorious autumn afternoon!
