Did it after the big snow, the trail was good and had been packed down. Overall a great hike.

This is one of my favorite hikes in Millcreek. A bit harder and longer then the others. The view is amazing and a good hike to wear out the dogs.

It's a solid hike. 2 miles with a gain of about 1200ish feet. View is definitely worth it. A lot of people around

Gorgeous sunset run last night!And perfect escape from the inversion! Just watch for those ankle grabbers on the way down.

Pretty beautiful during this season! Loved the hike and took my pups. Definitely recommend it! Not too hard at all. Went on a Tuesday, early afternoon and there were hardly anybody hiking so that was pretty nice.

I went on a Sunday morning and although it was a bit more crowded than I would have liked, it wasn't too bad. It took me an hour to get up and just under that to return, and it was pretty easy with a nice view at the top. Lots of people with kids and dogs.

Not too easy but nothing crazy strenuous. One of my favorite sunset hikes as you spend most of the way up in the shade and have an amazing view of the valley at the end

The pay off was nice but the trail was nothing to write home about.
