Kind of boring, just an easy hike. View was okay at the top.

Fun trail with lots of small rocks on portions of it. We did it clockwise and had a good time. Right at 4.1 miles as the sign at the trailhead states. Very clearly marked with orange triangles. Was definitely moderate for me. Lots of up then lots of down either way you go. Seems to be more switchbacks on the end part of the trail which was down for us going clockwise. So an easier ascent might be going counter clockwise with a longer ascent, but a more gradual incline.

Best time to see any views of the surrounding is during the winter months. Fairly uphill when hiking clockwise. Not to bad.

Very easy. We walked this one last year...I just knew we would come up on a snake...but didn't

took my daughter and puppy up. nice hike, steep in places. the south side is steeper than the north side. nice view of Lake Tillery, could see my neighborhood across the lake.

We love Morrow Mountain and all it's trails! You get great views from the loop trail. It's an easy trail that doesn't take long to complete.

Nice trail to get your heart rate up. Not too much to look at . Over look was decent of Bayden Lake.
