Former ski resort that closed many years ago, and has since overgrown. Many remnants of old ski equipment can be seen in the trail, such as lift ropes and pulleys, and drive motors.

Fairly short and easy hike. Great for kids. You have to kind of wander off the trail to see the views, but it was pretty. Would do it again.

If you are starting from the parking lot, keep going up and to the left for the best views

It was a cooler day and slightly muddy from melting snow. The parking lot is easy to find, a few hundred feet off the road , tucked behind a few houses.

The hike is easy and the path is pretty well maintained. There are stone steps when it becomes steeper. There wasn't much of a view even with bare trees, but it was still neat to check out the abandoned ski equipment.
