Panthertown Loop Hike

This is a good hike, giving some challenges and a good workout. If you want to swim, there is a swimming area near the waterfall. Some of the signage could be better. Many of the blazes are 10 - 15 feet into the trail and are hard to find when you are looking for the trail. Some people have placed arrows on the rocks, but finding where the trail foes off the rocks is sometimes hard. I will do this hike again.

Good hike for everyone, including small family members. There is a nice bathroom facility at the parking lot. The trail signage is very clear and you can easily figure out which trails you want to take. The Central loop is 3.1 miles and the loops off of it are very well marked at each intersection, even giving you the mileage of the extra loop. You can add loops and make up a hike of around 6 miles or juswt stick with the basic loop of 3.1 miles. Having the lake in view most of the time is an added bonus. Really enjoyed this hike.

Neat little hike. Very easy, with a few muddy places to cross, but no biggie.

Moore's Wall Loop Trail

We hiked the loop July, 2015. We started at the Hanging Rock parking lot and went clockwise to the Moore's Knob lookout tower. It was 2.6 miles with some steep grade to the tower where the view of the surrounding area was beautiful. We could see Pilot Mountain, Saura Town Mountains, Belews Creek and beyond. Back down to the parking lot was 1.6 miles with steep rock steps. The total hike was 4.3 miles and we would class this as a strenuous hike because of the length and the steep terrain and grade. Prepare for it to take 2 1/2 hours to 3 hours for the full loop.
