Great hike with better views once you hit the tower. I would consider this trail on the easy side becuase of the stone path. Which can be rough at times, I prefer a dirt path. I recommend this trail
I came here for the first time today. As a novice hiker, I thought it was amazing! There were parts of the white trail (I skipped around from trail to trail), that were tougher than expected but nonetheless awesome! This trail was an excellent workout! I highly recommend this trail. I plan on coming back many times and sticking to one trail at a time!
Bugs liked this a lot
I loved it! Great for kids, the view is great.
We had our infant with us so I wanted a trail with a well-paved path that was also a good hike and this fit the bill perfectly. I don't think you could do it with a stroller, but it is a good trail to take on if you want to avoid batting through trees or tripping over large roots.
Beautiful and easy
Great views and not so difficult.
Nice trail, pretty easy.
Great views, moderate climb.
Nice views once you get to the top. A fairly decent amount of trails to take to the top. Personal opinion, but not a fan of the mail gravel trail, prefer dirt paths.
Wide trail. Gradual incline. Nice view from top.
Main path had too much loose rocks. Like to try the other trails.
Easy hike. Nice views.
I hiked with my daughter and grandson...we traveled off the regular path to some of the more challenging ones just to get away from the crowd of people...it as great...fun and beautiful views from the tower. Great experience.
