This hike was an easy and fun hike. Through the week there is very little activity, but it can very hectic on the weekends with nice weather. It is the perfect time to visit with the changing of the leaves.

I love this park and all of the trails. The Indian Seat is nice to see and the view is awesome. The backside trail is fun with it's changing elevations and scenery. There is lots to do at this preserve for people of all ages

The place could be a lot more maintained n cleaner. It has pretty flowers just not enough pretty surroundings for doing family photos.

Hi. It is a hike to the view from the top. If you are going to do the walk, start from the parking lot on Tribble Gap Road, and not the visitor's center.
