Hiked this the day after the "big" wind storm. We got about 1/4 mile past prospect and ran into a number of large trees uprooted and across the trail. Climbed over a few then decided to turn back. Only saw a handful of other people on the trail. It's a nice steady hike on a smooth trail.

This was my first hike in years. The payoff at the top was brief taking.
Lots of great things about this trail: it was easy to find, there's a lake at the bottom where my dog swam, and nice views from the top. There are no difficult spots (climbing up or over anything nor walking close to a ledge) but it's easy to make the trail harder and a better workout by going quickly during the climb. There were lots of people and lots of dogs, probably 80% off leash. After only two miles, you've got a great view from the top!

Loved the views
Very pretty at the top! Great hike for beginners to determine what elevation you prefer. The only downside is how crowded this trail is on the weekends. It gets so crowded to the point where you are following a train of people. Will be back during the work week.
