Shirley L. on Parmalee Trail Loop
Beautiful and easy hike. It is not well marked in a couple areas but you should have cell service to find your way.
I conquered this hike today with dog pal moose. It was great and sunny and some what challenging as it was incline all the way up. There were a lot of bikes which wasn't the best but it was fun none the less. The ruins at the top were great but walkers dream also has some great beautiful views. Great hike if you are trying to work out those legs and butt !
Me and my 2 dogs started with the Turkey Trot trail followed by the Castle Trail to the top. Good mix of shade and exposure, and a pretty unrelenting, yet gentle, incline the entire way up. I also did Paramalee, Meadow, and part of Two Dog trails. Total about 10 miles. I'd avoid it on the weekend due to the number of people (and children) at the top, but it's nice during the week. Great workout and awesome views from the observation deck off of Meadows/Tower trail at the top.
