It was a solid little hike, not very difficult. Midnight hole is awesome for swimming. Very large crowds on this hike

Great views from the top and the cabin was very interesting. Amazing that a family lived and thrived in that little cabin.

Only did about 2 miles or so of the trail as we arrived late in the day. You could hear the creek raging pretty much the entire time.

Great little trail with stunning views! Worth the beautiful scenic drive along the blue ridge parkway! It is all uphill but short so it's bearable!

amazing views!

Great hike down a well-worn path good for entry-level hiking and horseback riding. Beautiful views of the river and forest the entire route. A little too heavily traveled for my liking which is why we knocked off one star.
