Nice windy shady trail. Creek is a nice cool off point. Almost 8 miles round trip

This was a great trail, and was riddled with amazing scenery. The trail is well kept, and clean.

Great little trail. If you go counter clockwise you’ll walk a nice zig-zag trail up. Two short rock stairs and a few side trails offer scrambling for those that want it. A few nice views on a well manicured trail. This is a very enjoyable trail.

great view lake lure and very quite

The payoff is beautiful at the top, difficult to enjoy the trail. Washed out, fallen trees and very rocky. Mostly incline, not recommended for children. Animals on lease for sure.

Amazing views at the top, rocky, wooded steep climb. Not recommended for small children. Cliff edge. One of my favorites

So much fun. Not too busy today.

Very easy mostly flat trail system. Took several older dogs for a walk and they really enjoyed themselves.

Great trail for kids ages 8 and up because lots of boulders to climb. Do not recommend for less athletic or younger children due to dangers of falling from high up. Parking lot was crowded on the Saturday we went, even during covid

I started at the trail head and took all the lefts at any given fork. It turned into a 2.5 mile walk. Mostly flat and well maintained, but the Roller Coaster trail has some nice inclines. If you’re looking for a quick fix, this will do.

I am glad I took the trail to the right to start the loop as the “stairway” was a bit challenging and it was easier to manage going up than down. Bench at end of loop with a view of Lake Lure.

Nice trail with tons of boulder and cliff views. Not a climber myself, but there are smaller boulders that are easy to scramble up near the real climbing ones. Also a couple nice views of Lake Lure in the distance.

NOT CLOSED.

Great short hike, stunning views, Mother bear and a cub close( be careful) huge boulders and many plant species.

This was a great trail for the kids and the dog to get out on! It's designed for mountain biking though so it's very loopy and up hill. Then switches and is loopy and downhill. Overall though we liked it and it was a great workout!

This is one of my favorite hikes now. The view is amazing! Not too hard and short. Yes there’s a few blow downs, the trail could use some maintenance, but it’s definitely worth it.

Took my two dogs we are beginners at hiking, this trail was great, clearly marked, paths were nice. It was a good work out for us. Will be back.
