Great steady consistent hike. Payoff view on the top was a peekaboo view of the lake below. Meaning only a small corner was visible. There was plenty of cougar scat along the way to go in group or w/ protection, never had any problems. But the usual common sense applies.
Hall Mountain is a great view hike with great views and wildflowers after a long, bumpy road to get there. If you are not fond of bikers, go on a weekday. This has become a very popular trail with Canadian bicyclists and the trail has become somewhat rutted and rocky as a result. Not actually a very difficult trail and is quite family friendly except for the possibility of being run over by a biker because the trail is narrow and on a somewhat steep side slope.
