amazing views, a bit icy at this time of year, we were able to make it around with our hiking shoes though. fun trail!

Mellow in the woods hike. Can hear background road hum for about 1/2 hike. Well maintained trail good for dogs. Holds snow so very pleasant winter conditions. Not rocky.

great view at the top. pretty easy.

Starts off a wide trail, not many people where on it. Goes from open area to heavily wooded. It's relatively easy at first then gets a slight incline on the way up to the Old Mill. Well marked trail. The outlook is pretty once you get the the peak. We saw 4 deer on the way up, also saw a mole rodent. There is a little bridge we crossed that was over a small brook.

Good hike! Some views on the hike up. The dogs loved the hike too! Bring yak tracks further into the winter.

I went from Elk to Oxen to Eagle's View, and returned via Ravens Roost. I think the round trip was closer to 5 miles than 4.4 (I calculated it to be 4.9 miles.) I agree with the review stating trail was easy enough, because it is well marked, wide enough and has a decent surface of gravel, dirt, pine needles ( a little bit of snow frosting the trees and path in some places very pretty).
I also agree it's challenging enough because it consistently inclines (steeper in some places than others), but the effort is worth it when you get to the top of Eagle's View - The mountain panorama is gorgeous.

Great fairly easy hike. I went from Elk to Oxen to this trail then took ravens roost to elk again on the way out. Nice views at the top, only saw one other person in the last mile back to the car.

Trail was appropriately rated, not too tough but challenging enough to get you breathing heavy. Great panoramic view makes for a great spot for photography, few good benches along trail and bbq spot near parking lot. Not too busy on a weekday and very convenient to do.
