Great hike but very challenging. I hadn't worked out for a month before I tried this and I regretted that because I could hardly walk when I got home. We hiked it counter-clockwise and I felt great at the half-way point and I figured the latter half I could do with relative ease. I was very wrong. At mile nine there's a hill where whoever made the trail obviously had a sick sense of humor and made the trail run straight up the hill. After that my legs were screaming at me for the last 4 miles, but totally worth it. The trail offers many different vistas, from valleys, to intertwining streams, to beautiful hilltop views. All in all, a fun trail, but unless you hike on a weekly basis or are some sort of triathlon runner, don't expect to feel chipper after.

My husband and I have hiked this trail frequently. It's one of our favorites. We have
hiked it during every season and in all types of weather. But let me tell you, it doesn't
matter how many times you do it, the climbs do not get any easier!

Definitely a cool weather hike, a lot of ups and downs. I really enjoyed the scenery from the ridge lines down to the hollows. I think it's a great trail for the moderately experienced hiker.

This trail will test you! Its almost 14 miles of some serious ups and downs. The Millennium is very well blazed but pay attention, it is rugged with rocks and bramble, making it easy to step off trail. If you don't see a triangular, yellow blaze in over 50 - 100 feet you are off trail. TAKE WATER, this hike is demanding and you cannot count on a natural water source. Visible from the ridge tops are beautiful panoramas and birds eye views of the Evan William's and Jim Beam distilleries. The Millennium is great and I highly recommend it. Giver yourself plenty of time to finish during daylight hours.

14 miles of monotonous young woodland with few summer water sources. Must also exit the park by dusk and no camping allowed anywhere.....Good training trail though

This hike was a nice workout with beautiful forests. Be sure to use plenty of bug spray during summer. I had to remove over 200 ticks after the hike. Very disturbing.
