This hike was very easy, good for a beginner, I thought there would be more of a sight up at the peak of the mountain. But, all the trees cover it. The look out tower was also closed when I went. I feel like this hike would have been more better if the tower was open. Also, while going down the mountain, the markings for the trails are not marked as clear as should be. We ended up getting off track a few times.

Nice trails in the area, low traffic for a beautiful Saturday. Fire tower at top is closed and is covered in graffiti. Fresh tree removal near the picnic area at the top, nice views. Looks like some drive up but most were parking at bottom and hiking around.

Good trail, a bit of a mix of paved road, dirt road, horse/mountain biking trail, and regular foot trail. The view from the top was nice, even though we went while it was cloudy and rainy out. I would suggest this trail as a running trail as well for those that don't mind the rocky parts and the up and down hills. The only thing that was a little annoying was the lack of markings. There were tons of different trails branching off of the main trail I was trying to follow, none of them were marked, including the trail on the map here, so you have to really pay attention to your GPS and try to stick with the trail on the map, unless you feel like exploring of course. Besides that it was a beautiful little trail, I carried my baby and a backpack up it, along with having my dog with me.
