Devils Fork Loop Trail

The bathtub and pool were awesome. We were able to jump in (very cold on a 75 degree day) and swim around a bit. I wouldn't recommend the loop trail as it is roughly 9 miles (not 7 miles) and there is very little to see. If anything, I'd go about a quarter mile into the loop past the bathtub and turn back. There's a lovely waterfall about that far into the trail but that's the last remarkable thing you'll see. Just wish we had spent less time on the loop part of the trail and more time at the landmarks. I wore my hiking boots on the way in, but wish that I'd packed my Chacos for swimming and wading. Make sure you bring a change of clothes because you won't want to miss out on jumping in.

The first mile is a bit steep, but it levels out after that and offers some amazing views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The vistas are well worth the climb!

Fun, challenging trail with several lovely stream crossings. Would have loved a good vista/lookout point at the top.

Got a wild hair to find a short trail to hike while in Covington on business. Wow! Beautiful! Can't wait to come back and bring the kids.

Really nice trail with wild life everywhere. Saw a Rattlesnake claming what was already his in the middle of the path. The falls were beautiful. Amazing how tall they are. Pretty busy trail. we saw 35-40 people on a Wednesday. Heading up was challenging for a beginner like me but down was a breeze. Stopped 20 times on the way up....stopped once on the way down.

There are lots of great views to see throughout the trails. Plenty of climbing, too.

It was difficult climb but so incredibly worth it. Reached the top a little after 7pm. Beautiful view! Also came across some super friendly deer that allowed us to pet them! Crazy! On the walk down, it was starting to get darker and we saw a momma bear with her cub! We made sure to keep a safe distance away from them but it was still awesome!
