Excellent trail. It is in fact a somewhat hard trail with a lot of rocky climbs which I enjoyed. Pretty well blazed for the most part. Was one section on orange trail where we went off course about fifty feet and just backtracked to find the blaze with no problem. Atop the orange trail you're basically traversing a mountaintop ridge which is nothing short of exhilarating. Found a lot of breathtaking moments on this trail, one of which was being no more than twenty feet from a perched bald eagle at the orange trail summit. If you start on the blue and end with the orange you do in fact have a difficult, rocky steep decent back to the car, which is why most start with orange and end with blue. No problem though, just went slow and handled it. 5 star hands down.

One of my favorites around! Incredible view. The trails on the bottom part of the mountain along the river are easy great for kids and dogs. Good fishing spots. However if you choose to go up, be prepared. Hiking shoes or boots should be worn. It's rocky. And at one point I felt like I was climbing the steps to mordor. The view at the top is incredible so the burning of your quads will be worth it!

Nice little workout. The creek is especially beautiful as is the view on top of point Mountain. The trail is difficult only for the first half mile. I recommend the incline up to the mountain to start. Going down is hard on the knees if you start the blue trail first.

This is an awesome, concise trail that gives you amazing views, meadows, and a scenic trail by the river. Only lasts 2 hours (with breaks) so would be perfect around sunset. Follow the Orange trail past the overlook and down the mountain until you enter the first meadow then follow the left trail and look for the blue trail

A great trail, almost in my own backyard. Highly recommended! Take the orange trail up to a great view, then follow it until it intersects with the Blue trail.

Nice hike up the rocks. Trails are maintained and marked. Views at the peak are awesome and the walk down the other side is easier, especially if you have dogs.
