Great hike/run. Minor icy & muddy conditions in a few spots, but the trail is wide enough to avoid them. Definitely will be back for the views.
This was a really great hike! A short hike with a huge view! Loved it here! A little tricky to find the trail head so pay attention to that.
Great hike with rewarding views at the top. You do pass a road and a house at the beginning, but once you get further up it feels more remote.
Dog on leash only.
Trail is in great condition.
Not 'off the grid' enough for us, there is a home and road in close distance to/along trail.
Fun Boulder to 'climb', but very little view available.
Parking along the road. Single track trail. Good amount of tree cover from the sun. Elevation gain isn't too bad until the end but even then it's moderate. Fantastic view.
Quite short and easy, barely saw anyone till we got to the top!

Not busy at all. My 58 year old dad from WI was able to complete it with just a few stop at the steps before the summit. A few areas with loose gravel that I wished I had a hiking pole but overall easy terrain and not overly challenging hike. I would rate it as easy, not moderate. The views from the top are excellent!
Don't pay to park. The trail head is just after you leave Boulder Mountain Park and there is free road parking.
