Great trail in late fall or early spring. Trail can be hard to follow in some areas due to overgrowth. Kid- friendly 7yrs on up.

Very nice, although steep at times if you're not very sure-footed/bad joints/whatever but great for a short afternoon hike. I enjoyed myself and the view from the top. Not much shade, so be wary of the time of day

1/10/15 This was a good uphill hike. Once at the top we weren't quite ready to call it quits and head back down so we followed what looked like an animal trail and went further then made our way back. Probably an extra mile or so. Very hazy day so the pictures weren't great. Will definitely do again. Good work out. I thought out and back meant 1.2 one way but it's the total hike if you stick to the trail.

Up hill most of the way. Great with a dog that's in shape.

Completed this trail on 1/1/2013. Just my son and I, my daughter was sick. The trail is short but almost all uphill. Got to the top in about 30 minutes. Great views. Temperature was in the fifties with a cool wind at the top. Take a wind-breaker if you plan to stay on the top for awhile.
