I took this trail with my husband and two boys ages 6 and 8. It was challenging in that there were several sections that required steady footing and climbing over rocks and boulders. The trail can get very narrow and drop off just to the right. We got a few scratches along the way but we are by no means regular hikers. It rained earlier so the rocks were a bit slick. The trail was beautiful, like something out of an enchanted forest. Giant rhododendrons lined the pathway. You’ll come up to several different large rock walls. Don’t forget to look up! There are a few areas where the trees clear and you can see a majestic overlook view of the mountain scape. It took us “out of shape” non hikers about 40 minutes to get through the first half mile through Castle Rock. The trail comes up a steep set of stairs and merges in with the rim trail. Take a left and walk another half mile back to the main overlook. This portion was much easier and resembles a normal trail. The best Grandview overlook was along this path. Make sure you stop for a photo!

This trail was beautiful. Large rocks for climbing, my toddlers handled it with ease, and stunning views. Can't wait to go back again. Wooden stairs are slippery when wet.

Great waterfall 5 miles up. pretty Rocky and can get muddy. water proof ankle high shoes suggested if wet. poles are handy for wading through the swampy bits. mosquitoes are around but weren't crazy with bug spray. plenty of great views and the incline is very gradual. primitive campsites found along the trail. You could make this a multi-day trip by following trails at the end of this one.

Easy trail. Beautiful views!

Loved this trail. Plenty to see- interesting rock walls, wildflowers and views of the river far below. Recommend good boots with ankle support.

this is an OK trail. it is pretty in spots, but others line a roadway. there are some place to lookout over the river below. but it's a lot of uneventful walking between views. if you need your "steps" then it's a good walk. if you need a hike then try endless wall or something else.

Wow! the magnolia bushes that line this mountainside are impressive. I walked this last week (April 2019) and wish I could come back in May. the trees had not quite bloomed yet. this path is moderately hard. wear shoes with good treds. not recommended to try this in tennis shoes or cowboy boots.

The Glade Creek trail can only be the first leg of the trip. The trail feeds into 2 other trails not on this map. If you look at my trek, you can see it goes further. That being said. It’s a bit harder. But worth the extra effort. It can be a 3 day trip no problem. Glade Creek I seen several people, but on the other 2 I didn’t see a soul. So if that’s what you’re looking for try it. (That’s what I wanted).

Really fun trail, but not easy as all. Lots of climbing over and thru boulders with enormous overhangs above. At this point, there's a tree down across the trail to clamber over, too.

The camping location we used is definitely the best group spot on the trail, lots of single site locations too. Doesn't seem to see a lot of overnight camping, only negative is the campsites are really close to the trail.

Love this trail, it's so beautiful! It's all along the creek though so be prepared for bugs.

Fun trail if you have waterproof boots. When the bridges are out (often), there's some shallow wading required.

Amazing trail! We went counter clockwise which brought a little more elevation but made for a treat at the overlook. Lots of rocks, and boulders. Large down tree about .6 miles in. -Lots of great climbing opportunity for those of you who dare!

Lots of scrambling up and down rocks, and heavy banks of icicles hanging overhead, breaking off and falling, and long icy patches in Feb. I'll give it another go in summer.
