This was our first hike of our Blue Ridge Road Trip. We brought lunch and started up. At first it's tough, a lot of stairs and incline. I think Alltrails said it was 1100 feet. I think that was exaggerated but it's still a decent trek. We went up to the upper falls and to the bald mountain at the top. At the top, there are some benches and a little wall to avoid sliding down. Opposite the wall we saw a snake which was cool. We saw lots of interesting creatures including salamanders as well as caterpillars. It was a really nice hike. Good length around 3.5 miles.
