This hike was quick and easy, but definitely a workout from start to finish. It was pretty peaceful and there was hardly anyone on the trail; which was nice. If you are looking for a short hike near St. John's, I would recommend this one, but expect to be a little sore afterwards if you haven't hiked in awhile.
Good, quick, in-town conditioning hike, albeit short. Travels steeply at times from near the base of Germantown Rd up to Skyline road. Turn onto the Wildwood trail to lengthen your outing.
steep uphill in parts. Good hike. Beautiful scenery. Not much parking. Carpool if possible.
This was a really good trail with steep elevation gains in the beginning (from Germantown Rd entrance). The trail was a bit soggy in certain parts of Wildwood Trail. The final stretch along the road is a bit tricky. Make sure to wear bright colors so when you're walking back up Germantown Rd you're highly visible to traffic.
