I am a huge fan of Big Views and that is exactly what you get here. We hiked up to watch the sunset and have dinner. I couldn't have done any better with only 40 mins until sunset.

Great hike to take children and pets on. Nice rock formation to scramble around on and find a spot to eat a snack on!

Hikes this one yesterday. Only met six other hikers. Be sure to go to the rock outcrops at the south end; these have the best view. There's also a semi-McAfee rock overhang picture you can take; if there's someone else to hold the camera. Nice view of McAfee to the SSW from there too. Some background noise from the cement plant on the first section, but a nice hike up the mountain; relentlessly up hill since it is a mountain. At the 3.1 mile mark, at the AT, there's a really big vine just waiting to be swung on. The two bridges are in good shape. I'm impressed by the trail. There's almost a couple hundred log steps in the hillside on the way up to work a different set of muscles.

Where is the trail? No markings anywhere!

I did this hike back in July and it was so hot. It was a pretty moderate climb but well worth it had lunch at the top.

I did this hike back in January it was very pretty and it was -1 with traces of snow on the trail.

Beautiful views, wild ponies, climbing rocks, this trail is awesome! When you reach the summit you are in a lush, green forest. Take the map that they give you with you and use it. You can easily get off trail and lost if you don't look back to it. Around every bend was a new, incredible view. We stayed in awe the whole time we hiked it. Lots of places to camp out. Plenty of people hiking in at sunset to stay overnight.

Definitely haunted

enjoyed this hike...nice views from little rocky row!...gets a tad difficult up top...nice river walk too!
