Definitely would have rated this moderate. You go down 400 feet before an uphill incline of that and more. Lots of rocks on the trail and the last bit involves climbing over giant rocks. Still I beautiful view though.

Great hike but very crowded, crossed the creek 3 times water low had no problem. The falls at the end were very pretty!

Nice hike watch for bears.. seen bear poop!

Excellent way to burn some calories and replace with great beer at local breweries

Fun waterfall hike. Some of the river crossings will result in wet feet so next time I do this will bring water shoes. Go early to avoid crowds.

Fun river crossings and a easy hike up and back. I recommend going in the mornings to beat the crowds.

Fun hike! Beautiful scenery. The boulders at the top are challenging to younger hikers. I would rate this as moderate for young hikers.

Great hike. Our dogs loved crossing the water many times.

Nice day hike to lovely falls at the top. Several rock crossings may leave you with wet boots! Or wear your swimsuit and take a dip.

It’s a fairly easy hike and the views are great! I will say the last 1000ft are fairly rocky and might be tedious for anyone with bad or weak knees. The bugs are also getting bad up toward the top so I highly recommend some bug spray!

Really nice hike for a family of four with a 9 and 5 year old in tow.

Nice fun trail with awesome scenery.

This trail was a lot of fun for an out and back trial. There are a couple waterfalls with lots of stream and cascade views. Fairly flat and anyone of any physical ability could do it. I will probably be doing this one again as well.

A good hike to do on a hot day. It was in the 90's but next to the river and in the shade, it was very cool. A nice short hike to swimming holes and enough area that it doesn't feel too crowded.

before you make the final right turn near the top there are some boulders on the left that offer a good view and some fun climbing. lots more room here than at the top so an ideal spit for lunch.

The beauty of this trail is unsurpassed. You hike through a forest with the river by your side. There are 3 river crossings. The third one was high (due to recent rains) so we removed our boots. The waterfall at the end of this hike was spectacular.

One of our favorites! A lot to see along the way; rivers, swimming holes, old dwellings. Very dog and kid friendly. Easy to spend a half day exploring.

Great hike. Loved that it wasn't heavily travelled. Fun rocks to climb on and sit on at the top. Great views!

I love this trail, but it is not that easy, not great for kids or older folks. Lovely views the entire hike up during winter/early spring and amazing views all the way around from the top. Very rocky toward the top.

Great hike with my dog. Highly recommend

More of a moderate then easy hike for kids. Otherwise great hike!

Awesome views on the summit!

Good trail for hiking. I hiked the outer fire trail and it was just about 3 miles. The start of the trail has a fairly steep incline to start which will give you a good workout! The rest of the trail had gradual inclines and declines. All in all I nice Sunday hike!

Great hike, took around 1.45h with breaks to enjoy the wonderful view.

Beautiful views at the end of the trail of the valley. Well worth your time!

We took the AT from Blackrock Summit parking area to the left on the Rockytop Trail and then another left toward Austin Mountain as we were doing the complete ridge loop down to the fire road and back up Furnace Mountain. The Rockytop portion of the trail [and Lewis Mountain "may" be a bit better] was nice walk in the woods at first and then we went along the left ridge through the rockpiles, which are pretty cool, and then down to the fire road. Views are ok, and rockpiles are a neat feature to pick your way through, but there are better trails nearby with more bang for your effort.

Nice little hike. Nice views and some opportunity for scrambling before the end of the trail. Moderately crowded on nice weekend days. Took about 2 hours up and back.
