Some interesting rock formations and a couple of decent views. Lots of rocks on the trail. Bushwacking is discouraged here.

This is a pretty nice trail that quickly leaves the large (apx 25 cars) parking lot behind and begins a short climb along the blue trail. I stayed on blue until it intersected with the white trail, then took that until it looped back and rejoined blue.

There are a couple of short but fun climbs, and a few very short rock ledges (Lucy's Overlook). Personally, I prefer more secluded trails but It's a pretty area with lots of dog walkers and families that's worth giving a try. While you're there, be sure to check out the visitor center.

Clearly marked trails, diverse terrain, nice views, perfect length...I highly recommend this trail. Some steep inclines but very fun to do.

The 5+ mile loop is a great diverse hike. Lots of elevation changes, vistas, rock formations, terrain and color changes. Several options to extend or alter your route along the way.

Great moderate hike. Did the 5 mile loop to include Tripod Rock and overlooks. We saw the city and really enjoyed this outing. We will be back to do longer hike.

Absolutely beautiful; 5 mile loop with some steep and vertical rock climbs and descends! We did our hike with our 50 lbs dog and she absolutely loved it. Has a few great overlook locations with high and far views. Great afternoon hike!

Nice day out. Some interesting features but mostly just a forest walk. Some glacial erratics, and some old house ruins. Combined this with Turkey Mountain on the other side of the road for a long day. A decent hike but nothing special.

The trails were very hard to follow, had to run from 3 bears. Even after closely following the map and directions we got lost and ended up in a neighborhood miles from where we should've been had to call the cops to bring us back to the parking lot. Im not stupid just a harder trail than expected be prepared.
