This is a nice trail if your just going for a good cardio hike. While our 7 and 8 year old sons did make it the entire trip up and down it is not suitable for children, at least not the trailhead where THESE directions take you. Constant incline and steep the whole way up. There is no view to see. Very busy on a Sunday as well. Lots of people let their dogs off leash so if you don't want dogs running up to you keep that in mind.

There isn't much of a view at the top, but it was a good hike and good exercise.

Nice trail to do quick hikes all year round. This is the North side trail, little bit harder hike then the South (Mud Mt Rd entrance). You can also access Goat trail from this side which is steep.

Great quick hike. Definitely got my cardio in on the way up! Picked a rainy day so the hike down was a bit more cautious!

This side is a little more difficult than the other. But walking through the trees is as beautiful as can be!

We did the north side trail, great trail, it is steep in places with switchbacks, stairs, lots of rocks and tree roots along the trail. We took the two year old and he made it about 90% of the way up on his own before tiring out on us!
