    This is NOT difficult! It' an easy and pleasant hike - it takes you past two landmarks in the Park, the Little Greenbrier School and the Walker Sisters Cabin, and then along the ridge of Little Mountain. The trails are well maintained, the few streams all have footbridges, there are some views into and out of the Park (probably more in fall or winter) along Little Greenbrier Trail, the elevation gain and loss is barely noticeable. The hardest part by far is the road walk at the end back to Metcalf Bottoms -- but even here the road is not heavily traveled so walking on the shoulder is fairly safe.
