A great hike but super busy when we went. Here's some footage of that to give you an idea: https://youtu.be/e9P03XVkU64

This was my first time hiking this loop. I started from the small parking area on RT. 211. Crossed at least 2 streams before the cement post and went to the right to follow the Buck Hollow trail (blue blazes) along the waterfalls. Beautiful. Passed a few other hikers but it was not crowded. There were few bugs and no bees. At the top of the trail there is the parking lot off of Skyline Drive. Go to the left at this cement post and follow yellow blazes for the Mary's Rock trail and loop back to RT. 211. The trail will split and Mary's Rock is to the right (yellow blazes) Buck Ridge continues to the left (blue blazes). I would have benefitted from hiking poles on the stairs. Looking forward to doing the loop in reverse next time.

Awesome. Sweet uphill scramble section and easy downhill. Next time I’ll go up and down the same section to avoid the forest road

Great hike. Nice outlook a mile into the fire road, going counter clockwise on the loop.

Technical and steep for first 1.5-2 miles. Then an easy stroll down on the fire road.

trail was fairly well marked. recommend going "reverse" like others. the trail was very steep in some places, but my 6 month GSP was able to handle it well. wear sturdy shoes as the trail was wet and rocky.

Hiking

Fun hike, I didn't find this hike to be very strenuous. As you pull into the parking lot the fire trail begins on the left side of the parking lot and the trail leading to take the little devils stairs on an incline is to the right. Def take the trail to ascend little devils stairs first. There are multiple small streams to cross so if you aren't well at balancing bring a change of socks your feet are def going to get saturated. I can't speak on the views, I stepped off at 9:00pm and finished at 12:30am. It rained through the duration so we took our time. The stream crossings and minor rock scrambling broke up the monotony of the incline and made it allot of fun. The loop was exactly 5.7mi, if you start with little devils stairs follow the blue trail markings until you reach the fire road then make a left and follow the yellow down. I'd be cautious taking a small child on a carrier.....There are plenty of opportunities to slip and only rocks to break the fall. I really enjoyed it and will be doing it again.

Meadow Springs up to Marys Rock isn't closed. A fairly sreep climb part of the way, but well worth it.

HikingBugsGreat!Scramble

Arrived a little after 8am, only one other car there - yes! First time with this hike. Did it counterclockwise as suggested - was fantastic. Kicked my hiney up the stairs and when arrived at the top, the canopy opened up like a gift from above - oh thank heavens as I was about to drop :) Took a left at the fire road and should have taken it all the way to the parking lot. But, no, I unfortunately made a right at the cemetery. Cool cemetery, read why they are called the 'blue' mountains. Got so lost - thank goodness there were 2 women clearing out brush about 45 mins down that trail. They gave me directions to get to back to the fire road - thank yoU! 1 hour later (down and then uphill, like I needed more uphill after the stairs), I was back on the fire road - Hallelujah. Was never so happy to see my car in the parking lot! Amazing hike, would do it again in a heartbeat. Notes: Google will take you directly to the parking lot. Do the trail/stairs, not the fire road first. When you get to the top, take a left at the fire road and follow it ALL the way to the parking lot. Oh, and bring bug spray if you're wearing shorts.

Rock climbingGreat!Rocky

Very challenging but so worth it at the end. The fire road back was pretty long but the incline was worth the views. My dog had a few hard moments but we made it through. Would definitely recommend!!

As others recommend, go counter clockwise, which takes you up the stairs. Really enjoyed this trail. Even after driving past a number of private properties on a gravely road, once we stepped onto the trail, we already felt like we were in the wilderness. The first steps on the hike set the scene with a quick jump over a little creek and deep foliage all around you. About a mile in, you’ll see a quaint waterfall to your right, and you’ll be following that waterfall’s path back all the way up the mountain. As you make the hike and rock scramble up, you’ll see numerous cascading falls, wild flowers, and wildlife. About 2.5 miles in, you’ll reach the top of the falls, and hit the hatchbacks and climb to the fire road. You’ll turn left on the fire road, and about a half mile down, you’ll reach a little path to a rock with an overlook. That’s the best overlook of the hike, but you’ll still be walking that ridge for a bit with other chances to see the tops of the peaks around you. You’ll make your way back down that road until you reach the parking lot and complete the loop. The road is a pleasant stroll surrounded by pine, maple, oak, and other trees, that creates an enjoyable atmosphere to breath and appreciate the clean air and wilderness that surrounds you.
