Ended up being an 8 mile walk where we had to just turn around and go back the way we came. Darlington trial had nice orange trail makers but at one point the markers take you off the "loop" that is in the map picture and you go way off base. No view...won't do the trail again.

The road and the Tuscarora trail are not well maintained for hiking and are a bit overgrown. There were too many bugs and too much poison ivy for my hiking preference. The AT is much better maintained and was much more enjoyable to hike on. The upside, is there were not many other hikers. At the Cumberland Valley Overlook there is a nice rock seating area to rest and enjoy the view.

Nice quick loop trail. Much easier than it's rating.

It isnt the best trail if youre looking for something to see. It was difficult to find the orange trail markers. It started to get boring 2 miles into the trail. We didnt go to the complete end of the trail but it was like that same thing the whole time. I would only recommend this if you like walking and dont really wanna site see hiking trails.

Challenging loop. Great workout. It was raining on and off while I was out which made the trail/rocks pretty slippery. As far as mountain biking goes, I’d say this trail is moderate.

At about the 2.5 mile mark there is a clearing with amazing views in both directions. The trail itself was not overly difficult; however, the amount of leaves on some of the steeper grades made for some "fun" descents.

The trail was great, but the 2nd part of the trail (the north section) had no markers, this was the hard part of the trail. Needed to keep looking at my GPS on this App.
Just a reminder, make sure your phone is fully charged and bring a lot of bug spray.

Not a very challenging trail. There were a few good uphill sections but not too bad. Most of the trail was overgrown so I wouldn't recommend shorts. Also a lot of the trail (especially the Darlington Trail portion) was just broken rocks, easy to slip and roll an ankle on. The worst part is the bugs, bugs and more bugs. Other than that it was an "ok" trail, nothing special though. Not very well marked. Darlington Trail marked fine but other half not well at all, easy to take the wrong trail with many side trails.

Most of this trail is treacherous. As an intermediate rider with a hard tail, the first three miles were pretty arduous, having to muscle through many rocky sections.There are a few cool features in the creek valley, but be aware for one of the bridge features is missing several planks. The hard work pays off when you get to the top of the mountain (Darlington trail) and cruise the ridge. There's a fun but rocky downhill section that ends the loop.

always a great little trail to hit when we are looking for somewhere quick and easy to head too. If you do the loop it kinda sucks humping up that steep paved road at the end but great local spot

it's a good day hike

Great easy family friendly hike. Did a bit of trail running with the kids and they loved all the fallen trees along the side of the trail, which made for a great obstacle course. Easy to find parking and other hikers had left plenty of walking sticks behind.

We loved running about 8.5 miles on this trail. Mostly flat, well maintained, great forest and open pastures. Definitely recommend this as a trail run!

As a trail runner, I decided to run this and not hike it. Definitely worth it and will be doing it again. Great views!

It's exactly 2.5 mi from the parking lot on 850 to the view. This part of the AT is nice in that it rises steadily and then levels out giving you time to recover. The steepest portion is hard but is relatively short and the view is rewarding.

I went another 1.5 mi along the ridge. It is level but rocky which caused me mind every step.

I'd say this is on the more difficult side of the moderate rating.

Doing the loop clockwise is optimum, during the first half of the route you will be hiking on a shared route with the Darlington Trail (which is well marked). Be aware the split from Darlington is noticeable. Hiked this in August enjoyed the shade, but no views. I will be back after the leaves are gone to check out the views.

pretty trail not as difficult as I thought. saw some deer and had fun getting lost for a bit easily found way back.

Alltrails is going to need to add PokemonGo to the list of activities. Moderate hike to the Cumberland View!

Did this as about a 9.4 mile overall out and back. From where you start on rte 850, it is almost exactly 3 miles to the Cumberland Overlook bench and so I kept going down the other side for another mile and a half or so. There are some definite ascents and descents on this one, but nothing too outrageous I suppose :) I only took along a liter of water, I would suggest taking two, especially if it is warm out. There are one or two places along the way with water, but I did not have a life straw along with me.

Had a great time getting lost, then finding my way back!

Well marked and maintained. A bit muddy after all the rain. Nice view about half way.

trail is not marked very well, is very steep at some parts, not very scenic, and it was difficult to find. parking area was not marked, and trail was not cleared in the state game lands forest areas so I rolled my ankle trying to maneuver through the ditches and rocks covered by the leaves. would not recommend or retry.

Good hike. steep in 1 spot till you get to the top. great view once there. clearly marked. trail nice and clear. Good hike.

I began this trail from Lamb's Gap Road parking lot and headed West on the Darlington Trail. That goes about 2.5 miles until Miller's Gap Road. It crosses there and then heads to the right. If you are paying attention to the orange markers, you see that the Darlington trail shoots off to the left and another trail goes straight. Left takes you 1.5 miles to the Appalachian trail intersection, where Darlington Trail ends. Straight keeps you on this Lamb's Gap trail. Be warned, there are no more tree markers at this point, but you can see the beaten path.

Going straight puts you out on a state game land access road. Go right, back over Miller's Gap road and then into the woods again. The trail is easy to see based on the beaten path. However after a while I felt like I was heading backwards. Keep going and you will eventually see some tree markers that are black with white dots in the middle. If you turn around you see that you came from a split trail. I kept to the right to head back to my car. Further along the markers stop and the trail splits again. I went right again. That winds around a lot, goes over a creek, and has you walking up the other mountain side that you did not come in on. It eventually shoots you out at the State Game Lands parking lot on Idle Road. Then I followed Idle Road back to Lamb's Gap to reach where I parked. Idle is pretty steep, especially for the end of your hike.

I am rating this a 5 star despite the lack of marking and guessing which paths are which. I like the varied terrain and elevation. Some parts were rocky and some were not. Most were typical forest areas. If and when I do this again, I will go the opposite direction. It was hard to figure out where I was going before with the lack of direction. There is a non motorized vehicle access crossing on Idle Road that confused me. That is not the trail entrance. You have to keep going until you get to a parking lot on the left side of Idle if you are coming from Lamb's Gap Rd.

We only did about 3.5 miles of the trail today. A lot of wildflowers growing along the trail made if very beautiful. Very easy trail, it begins through two different fields and then continues on to the Appalachian Trail. Only one small climb and that was pretty easy as well. We found a spectacular wild orchid on the way. I would like to go back and finish the whole trail when we have more time.
