I jumped on this trail in the summer. Lots of horse flies. It’s basically an ATV trail. Scenery was blah until you get to the mountain. My total distance was 30 k. Most likely won’t do it again. Cheers.

there's lots of rocks and footing is tricky in some places. the whole climb is mostly up hill, there's a few steep spots. I'm 27 and out of shape and still did it with a few breaks on the way up. if I brought my 8 year old she would of found it hard. not recommended for younger kids. the view is great.

We enjoyed the hike. It’s a nice hike that doesn’t take all day. The view is amazing. Dog friendly.

Short but decent climb!! Even appears to have rock climbing faces for those setup for rock climbing!! Dog friendly, a bit difficult in sections, great working teaching them foot work!! No water access along the trail for the dogs. A lot of the trail is a weird possible old dry creek rock bed or something. Your eyes tend to stay on the ground to ensure footing, but trail is tree-d until you reach the top which is spectacular!!

Rocky. My 8yo managed it so kid friendly

A beautiful end to a nice climb. Roots and rocks on path can be tough, but take your time and youll be fine. well worth it!

Awesome hike. Rocky and steep in some places but only 30-40 mins to the top. Beautiful views at that top.

Excellent trail. Challenging, up hill the entire way to the top. Wear shoes with good tread. Beautiful view from the top. No garbage at the trail head or along the trail. Great trail for dogs.

Straight uphill for little over 15 mins, which is a nice quick workout. The view is amazing! But you NEED bug spray!!

My favourite quick hike. Takes about 15 minutes to climb without breaks. The incline is steady and I suggest wearing proper shoes. The view from the top is amazing. All 3 dogs love it too. No concern for them falling off anything.

Great trail, good place to start if you haven't hiked in a while and want a challenge. Plenty of places to stop and rest. Lots of insects, would recommend wearing breathable long-sleeves and joggers. Top of the mountain is a great place to eat lunch. Fairly muddy when raining but not unbearable.

Awesome trail for a solid workout, steep incline with lots of rocks. Wear proper shoes. View at the top is scenic, with anchor points for climbing.

Une très belle randonnée, mais très rocheux. Il faut constamment regarder par terre pour ne pas trébucher. Par contre, la vue du haut vaut la montée.

Difficult trail due to rocky path and steep incline, beauty of a view up top though. Multiple anchor points on the top for rock climbing.

I’ll give it four stars only because I’m a climber and it’s camping potential with its wonderful fire pit set up. For the typical hiker I’d give it 3. View is decent. Very rocky and somewhat strenuous.

Easy trail - worth doing for the view from the top!
