Nice view for a nice, easy hike. Would recommend going early in the morning to beat the crowds.

Nice section of the AT with easy access from Keys Gap Parking lot on Hwy 9. Not many elevation changes but sturdy shoes and trekking sticks are helpful because this trail has many rock crawls.

Fun hike with decent views east down the Potomac. Also pick up a little of the Appalachain Trail, it was fun to see the through hikers.

Nice morning walk with the dog. Starts off from parking lot down the ridge to the battlefields. Cannons and lots of historical signs then back up the ridge to the parking lot.

Beautiful trail; not too difficult; some narrow, overgrown segments; lots of civil war history markers. Very crowded in the late morning to afternoon, nice and quiet in the early morning.
