Once above the plant growth, it starts to climb moderately through somewhat rocky terrain. From the top, one can see a good view of Eagle River Valley and the surrounding mountains.

Popular trail since its right in Eagle River, a lot of activities are done from this mountain, a lot of times during sunny days in the summer you will have paragliders flying around which make it a neat experience. Be careful when the ground is wet, this climb is especially slippery once you begin the steep section near the top half.

Was a good hike. Child friendly and good for beginners. Trail is heavily used and well packed for easy hiking. It does get steep towards the end but nothing hardcore.
