Nice trail, not too hard but beautiful. We picked up mossy rock trail up to the ridge road. Then walked the ridge to alligator rock trail followed back down to the parking lot. About 3 1/2 miles total. A few trees down on the last stretch.

Nice trail. Not too difficult but still a challenging enough for a good workout.

Very pleasant trail.

Nice walk but not what I would call a trail. It was very crowded and noisy but well worth the time.

Not a bad hike but I wouldn't say it's easy. The park map lists it as moderate and that's a much better description. It's more of a hike than just a walk in the park.

good trip with friends and the dogs

Not easy! My kids struggled with steep terrain and lots of huge trees to climb over. Beautiful though!!

Beautiful trail! My dog and I enjoyed running it.

Great for those starting, have health issues, older folks or you children or just a easy stroll through the woods.
