Beautiful fall colors! Took the blue trail up and the yellow trail down. Both trails are very well marked and maintained.

We really enjoyed this hike. We took the blue trail up and yellow trail back down. My kids (4yrs and 7yrs) did great! My 4yr old hiked the entire way up but we carried her most the way down. The blue trail is def trickier with kids due to some of the "rock climbing" at the end.

Great trail. Yellow trail is an easy way up. Blue is more challenging coming in from RT. 28. Family and dogs can do this trail. I would recommend staying on yellow tag trail for dogs and young ones. Great view.

We hiked the yellow trail. The beginning of the trail was wide open and easy. Last 1/2 mile a little more difficult but not bad. The first view is nice. The trail on the app did not match the actual trail so we did not have any lake views from the summit. If you look at my recorded trail just go another few tenths of a mile to see the lake views.
