trail is marked by a super faded black dot. very easy trail, honestly more of a nature walk. the view is so worth it though!
Kid-friendly, view at end is worth it
It's an easy hike up a service road, until you get to the trail. Located not far from the (kinda) steep hill. The trail will be on your right and marked by a black dot, on a tree. The view is very rewarding!
The view at Tank gorge is awesome, like someone said the beginning part is pretty boring. We missed the turn and hiked a bit further then we should have watch for orange marking on right side of trail going down first hill. If you hit a "t" you went to far and may go on a much longer hike to buzzard hill. Great beginner hike!
A little long and boring at the beginning, when you walk the open road, especially on a windy winter's day. I guess that was because we had to park at the first gate by the county road. Definitely watch the map because it is not very well marked! Rewarding when you reach your destination! The view is spectacular and there are many spots to take a look at what's down below.
easy out and back.
Awesome view, especially with the snow! Worth the hike. Definitely park in 2nd lot, if gate is open.
We parked at the furthest lot. And went in from the rear of parking lot and somehow did a 5 mile loop.. finally finding to right trail and getting out to road. If that was the listed hike then yes it would be easy! And we were kind of glad we made up our own. Lots of unmarked paths. View was great once we got there. I would hike his again.. the same way we did today and make it a loop. Also thought that if you park at the very first gate.. it would be a great place to cross country ski. Good luck finding the correct trail. Thank god for google maps.
Easy and peaceful trail! Agree that it is a bit difficult to find (thank you to previous reviewers for your tips!). I posted a photo of the trailhead in the hopes that it helps future hikers. Look for the black spot on the tree and turn right. Happy hiking!
The view is absolutely stunning. I would suggest parking at the second lot if the gate is open to do so. It's a very boring walk up to the trail head. Once on the trail it's a short walk to the lookout. Very easy. If you are looking to get your heart rate up and challenge yourself a little bit this isn't the trail for you. However, with that said, it's absolutely worth checking out if you're in the area. It's really quick and gorgeous up there.
The trail in was very easy and brief. If you're looking for a challenging hike-this would not be for you. The view however is stunning. Very quiet. Very peaceful.
