Great views at the top. That’s where I turned around since I saw reviews that the rest of the trail is along the road. Packed snow and ice along the way; microspikes or yaktrax recommenced. Just makes things easier. Good hike to get your lungs used to the elevation but not overwhelming.

It was more easy to moderate I think. I had on spikes which were helpful; it’s here and there ice but the ice is serious where it’s at! Easy for out of towners too for the views; unless you wanted to just drive them to the top. Very easy trail to follow!

I was a bit disappointed that the trail finishes out along the road, definitely ruins the potential this hike has, best to just hike to the park at the top and turn around. Super snowy, but packed nicely for the most part, would definitely recommend micro spikes but I saw people without

The first leg up to the mansion is snow covered, but the trail is obvious. After that, you're better off just walking along the side of the road to the end and back up. Beautiful snowcapped views both ways

Great hike with amazing views. There are more trails past the Boettcher Mansion and Nature Center at the top of you want to add some steps. The 2nd half isn’t worth it as other posts have mentioned—too close to the road.

A great hike that’s close to the city. Outstanding views and a fun hike. It gets windy up there so make sure you’re prepared!

As everyone mentioned below I also think it’s only worth it to go up the 1.2 miles to see the view up there! If you have a hammock there’s an awesome spot up there to tie it up! Really beautiful spot to watch the sunset. Highly populated trail though and a ton of mountain bikers!

9/29/2019 - Trailhead is open! I definitely recommend skipping the second half. Luckily, the first half ends right across the street from the Lookout Mountain Nature Preserve which has a couple short, easy trails you can tack on if you want a little extra mileage. They start to the right of the nature center.

Near the city-good if short on time but Want to walk in the woods. Wooded and nice bit of climbing. The road noise was constant.

First half it’s a nice trail. Second half it’s a joke, nothing but a dirt path next to the road

Beautiful mountain views and fairly easy. Would recommend just doing the lookout mountain trail up about 2 miles the lookout

Short and sweet hike, definitely more on the easy side. Went the 1.2 miles up as recommended, great views from the top and a couple stopping points. Popular mountain bike trail, so keep an eye out. Even only going up to the top you still are within eyesight of the road a bit of the time, never really feel secluded.

A tale of 2 halves...first half was pretty good and scenic, second half was a waste. The second half is very much next to a road the entire time on an overgrown trail. while the first half was good, there were lots of mountain bikers. Go for the view at the parking lot, and then leave for another trail.

We only did the recommended 1.2 miles up, and the view is definitely worth it! Perfect day, sunny and not too hot!
