love the views

Nice hike. The reserve is beautiful. Well marked, clean and easy trail. Didn’t like the asphalt road toward the top on the backside of the dam.

Love this trail. Short and easy to moderate. Pretty scenery, clean, well marked and great views at the top. Only downfall is there are a lot of people there.

Great trail! Pretty scenery and views with a gradual uphill.

Went on a super windy day and it proved to be a little too much at the very top and super hazy (due to the fires up north) can’t wait to go back on a clear day. Even with a kid on my back I would say this is moderate if you are in decent shape.

I had a blast with this hike outstanding view at top of mountain .... bring plenty of water take your time lots to see.

Great night hike!!i

Beautiful scenery through out the trail and ending with a beach walk back to the starting spot is a great cool down.

Was a good hike, surprised how fast it went at a waking pace.

Nice trail with a gradual climb for about the first half of the hike up then switch backs finish to the peak give a paced workout to the summit. Well groomed trail and fantastic panoramic views at the top with picnic tables and perch points let you celebrate the trek up Iron Mountain. I didn’t bring or need walking sticks as the trail rocks are easily maneuvered.

I hiked this trail on a Sunday. The parking lot at the trail head was full. The only downside about this trail is that almost everybody starts and finishes at the main entrance and there is one path shared for hiking up and down so the traffic got pretty heavy at times and we were paced by the number of people (and their dogs). I like when there is some dispersion of hikers and trail options that let me hike at my own pace. I love people and I love dogs, I’m not complaining about that, I’m just pointing out that there was traffic on the trail. Maybe a weekday hike would be a quicker pace for this trail. 4 stars, I will hike this trail again!

The views are amazing but this is a very busy trail. Going down it definitely seems easy and the trail does go all the way down to the ocean with beautiful views all the way. I definitely didn’t realize how steep it was until I was in the way back up. The smooth sandy trail is too set and carved out for my taste but I assumed it was for safety and preservation I would definitely hike here again.

Very nice on a beautiful day..

Great hike to chat with friends while getting some nature time on :)

I am a recreational day hiker and this is one of the prettiest hikes I have ever been on. The views going up the last mile are just outstanding.

We did this around 8am it was perfect timing. The fog came in later so we had some great views. It’s started to get crowded around 930am.

great when it isnt crowded!

Got there quite early (730am) and it was very foggy on the hike up but the temps were so mild it was perfect. The include was gradual but you get a good cardio workout.

Definitely epic views.

Best part - briskly walking the beach hoping to not get my shoes wet... which didn’t happen

Great easy walk!

Beautiful! This is ranked as easy but if it’s high tide and you can’t cut across the beach, you’ll have to go back the way you came; if you’re new to hiking, the gradual inclines will get you a bit out of breath. But still an easy, breezy hike.

I love how the trail offers breaks just at the right time to be able to stay in motion.

Great hike any time of the year!

Great trail to bring out of state guests and friends.

Fun afternoon hike

Nice trail. Beautiful views!

Beautiful beach trail. Keep an eye on the tide though if you’re planning on walking back on the beach.

Parking was the only issue, so get there early. The trail was nice & easy with amazing views. The trail by itself took about an hour.

A classic and iconic trail. Simple as that.

Many sick photo ops
