Easy to moderate trail! You can take many side trails off of this one and it was a fun one to explore. Several small creeks with some pretty decent views! Found several great spots for my hammock!

If you want to see a bunch of people not social distancing, this is the place. The nature is top notch though.

Really enjoyed the hike. It was very active with people. Some work being done to the trails, one bridge was out. View was great.

Rock top summit was closed about 1 mile from turnaround point, detour at around .25 mile mark for felled trees, but still a great hike!

Cool to do once or twice but eventually you’ll want to explore other parks/trails as to avoid crowds and irresponsible people who can’t clean up after themselves or their pets.

Decent if you’re looking for a little workout but hiking?... go somewhere else. Too crowded, dog poop all over the place, trash all over the place. The less steep gravel road is a longer route obviously, but also less crowded and therefore more enjoyable to me. Be a responsible human being and clean up after yourself and your pets. That should go without saying but we are talking about Gastonia after all

Great views, steeper trail, too many people.

Great trial, great bouldering and rock hoppin! Busy!

This was my first attempt at hiking. After hiking this trail, I rushed home to order some trail runners and trekking poles. I love this mountain and will be back very soon.

Great trail with some fun rock scrambling! Busy trail (as is normal).

I liked this trail a good bit. Lots of steps on the way up and some are steep but nothing too bad. Got a bit of a sweat but felt good at the top. Way down on the gravel road was okay and nothing really special but was more relaxing

Did some jogging on this trail on 12/15/19. It rained yesterday but the trail wasn’t too bad. Pretty lake and dense woodlands. It was a nice quick job with moderate elevation change. Took me 15-20 mins

Hiked it late Fall. The park service should really make an effort to rake all the leaves from the trail. (JK)

Good steps workout. Cool view of CLT

Perfect Dog friendly trail with a good amount of space for people to walk by or other dogs without any issues.

Cute windy trail around small lake in beautiful wooded area. Do not be scared away by the developed park and soccer fields. This trail IS in the woods. Orange markers were tricky to find and sometimes non-existent, but we were able to stick to the trail by watching our AllTrails map. We hiked in a Friday morning around 10am and didn’t see anyone else on the trail. Lots of parking right at trail head and a BATHROOM!
