White-blazed trail is generally easy walking, with occasional traversing of rock outcroppings and small boulder fields. Views are generally hemmed in by trees, but two scenic vista are marked by signs on trail, one north of 233 allows view of South Mountain Restoration Center, and the more spectacular Chimney Rocks vista is close to the southern carpark. One tricky area in the trail is a jog on Coral Ridge Road. Be sure to follow the white blazes; there are several false trails leaving the road. Hiking south to north gets the vertical change out of the way, leaving a predominantly gentle downhill the rest of the way. Many come from the north, leaving a moderately steep descent at the southern end. For those who only wish to climb to Chimney Rocks from the south and go back down, there is a blue-blazed alternative trail (an old logging road) at the Chimney Rock turnoff which rejoins the Appalachian Trail at Tumbling Run Creek. Antietam Shelter is permanently closed, but there is space to set up tents plus frost free water faucet, toilets and pavilions at Old Forge Picnic Grounds.Show more
