dogs on leash
I started at 7 am and reached the top by 7:30am. I was the first and only one up there at the summit and it was do beautiful. the fog was still in the valleys, but the sky was clear and I could see far in the distant for a picturesque view. very user friendly. took me 25 minutes to get down the trail
We totally go lost in the preserve. The entire 2.5 hrs we were on trail we only saw one white dot, no yellow, blue or red trail markers or any cairns. That being said the trail was nicely cleared and challenging. View we did see which ended up being Middle Mountain not Peaked.
Hiked on 09/01/16.
This was my very first real hike and I certainly didn't think it was "easy," BUT, it isn't very long and the view at the top was spectacular! Most of it is very doable, but the last .3 or so is pretty steep. Wear decent footwear, the rocks look like they'll be very slick if they've gotten wet. It hadn't rained so they were dry for us. But I think I would have stumbled an awful lot if I didn't have my hiking boots on. I saw a few people struggling a bit in regular sneakers.
There were a bunch of children having no trouble with this trail, so I think it would be good for all levels. Like I said, my first hike ever and I completed it with a bare minimum of complaints. Beautiful, gorgeous views.
