This is easily one of the best hikes in the southern Appalachians. It is well marked, fairly strenuous, and has beautiful views throughout. I happened to be there after some snow came through, and the trail was covered in ice... If you find yourself on the trail in icy conditions, I highly recommend poles and shoe spikes, as some of the open rocks near the top can be very treacherous.

Great site seeing. Feels like a safari, wildlife on both sides as well as structures from the 1800's

The North Loop is part of a tour of the Parker's Crossroads Battlefield, and explores sites relating to the onset of the battle fought on December 31, 1862. The trail has historical markers and occasional benches. It winds across an open field except for tree-lined path at the start and a single cool grove of trees which is very welcome on a hot day. As a battlefield nut, I really enjoyed the historical interpretation and would like to get back again because it appears from satellite views that the trail has been lengthened to a field south of Wildersville Road since I walked it.

fun and defiantly challenging with pug in tow.

Great hike! Clean trail!

Beautiful! Love the creeks and many bridges over them, arch rock and views at cave. Would have kept going to Mt Le Conte if the kids were not with us. Got pretty steep and tiring the last 1/4 mile.

Somewhat challenging, but falls are worth it. Saw a few black bear on my way up.
