A beautiful place to hike to. It is quite a hard hike, but well worth it! It was very hot that day so that made it quite difficult, but it was still fun. I paid for it the next couple days with lots of soreness. It took us about an hour to get to the top from where we started. That was probably the shortest part of the trail. You can go lots longer if you would like making a whole loop. No thanks – this was enough for me and the prettiest part anyway. This park is near the Blue Ridge Parkway so if you have time you can enjoy the drive and the views there.
