Trail was fun for such a short walk...nothing hard, but markings shift to red squares after you get to the overlook (which btw is no way 2.7 miles). I continued on the red squares for a while and it was a gorgeous walk. Fun for a few hours. But I'd like to know what the red square trail is?
Easy drive and available parking to the starting point. Trail is just challenging enough to make it fun and adventurous. Even in 38 degree weather you break a sweat and get a good workout in getting to the top in which you are then rewarded with an absolutely incredible view of the surrounding landscape. Gives you that, "on top of the world feeling" especially if you dare to stand upright on the tallest rock. Great way to spend about three hours of my morning.

This trail is not bad for exercise, like others have said, the first mile is not bad. It has many wildflowers to see, but then after the first mile, it becomes really steep, and the views are not too grand. the sign at the top, shows the highest point 3,310 ft. That was the only view at the top. In order to get back to your vehicle, you can either go back the same way on the trail or walk along Kenning Rd.
This Hike is very doable even for beginner hikers. We parked at the second parking lot where there is a big sign to the left. The trail is through two big rocks at the parking lot and splits at the beginning. There are no guide signs. Take the left trail where it leads to a beautiful hike through trees and woods. There is such a variety of different plants and mushrooms. It can be exhausting since the trail is steep in some places but with a couple breaks in the shade and plenty of water it's no big deal at all. It's mostly shade the entire way. The lookout at the top is absolutely breathtaking! It's definitely worth the hike and no disappointment at all. The trail does continue but we didn't pass the lookout. I thoroughly enjoyed this trail!

good hike..starts out easy first mile then it gets pretty steep. Not a lot of surrounding views but enjoyed the coverage on a hot day.
Beautiful views, You can see the interstate I-81 on the right from mile marker 75 to the left view going hlF way into Rural Retreat .. it looks really small and wytheville looks like a spec up on these mountains... Great trail!! Deff. Recommend this!!
