this is a good hike for an evening work out with nice views from the top and options to join other routes; the deer are used to people enough to give a close encounter whilst staying safe.

It's a short hike-perfect for the early morning. Getting to the top might feel a little tough, but the view is definitely worth it!

Love this trail, I come here after work several nights a week, great work out but short enough and close enough to town to get back before it's too late. I wouldn't recommend bringing kids or dogs here as you are almost guaranteed to see rattlesnakes, usually right on the trail. Be careful and watch where you walk.

Suuuuper cool Mesozoic rocks and formations out there for all you geology nerds. I saw lots of prairie dogs, some meadowlarks, spotted towees, rabbits, and heard several more creatures. A rattlesnake ended up crossing my path on the way back down, so watch out for those guys! Not a great barefoot hike though, lots of large gravel on the trail. All in all, beautiful hike! ⛰
