We went here for a Memorial Day hike for the first time. I didn't expect it to be completely uphill...duh, what was I thinking? It's up a mountain! The view from the top is definitely worth it. Pack a lunch and enjoy the view for a while. There's also lots of places to camp and lots of overlooks to stop... More

I absolutely love this hiking trail. I consider it moderate - with some challenging parts. As others have stated before me, there are many different places to stop and take photos or simply look out. The view from the top is awesome!

When local developers fenced off the existing roads to the mountain top, some kind soul bought and donated some land and created parking and a nice hiking trail back to the public lands on top. It's up a mountain, so expect some effort - but the view from the top is lovely, and you will find some of the best... More

Shameful that campers think proper disposal of cans and bottles consists of leaving them in their campfires. Perhaps due to a lack of science education in Georgia?

Awesome trail to hike! There are outlooks at different points. However, nothing beats the view at the top!

This is an excellent place to hike and camp. The elevation gain was not that hard so it was a moderate hike. The views on the top was just gorgeous!! There are also provisions for rappelling and rock climbing.

I love this trail! It's difficult and makes you feel like you have accomplished something. And the view from the top is magic.

This was our first mountain hike and I must say, it was perfect for us! The terrain went from easy to difficult, as long as you're physically fit you should be more than fine on this trail. There are so many adventure spots and awesome photo ops. The views from the rock face are amazing! We are from Florida and... More

I bagged many peaks in my twenties...BUT that was over a decade ago and a lot less pounds on the body! This trail absolutely kicked mine and my husbands butts! There are VERY few flat spots on the way up! It is a challenging hike in both directions. We definitely overestimated the time it would take as well as our... More
