Slight grade at the beginning, but the trail itself is clear and well used/marked. It levels off and continues out to the power line pass where there is a good view of both the Huntsville side and Owen's Crossroads side of the mountain. The last half of the trail is pretty flat through the woods.

Easy trail with a couple of good views. The beginning climb is fairly easy, then a pretty walk along a ridge line before you get to a couple of good view points. Trails are marked and cleared, also a couple of park benches. The first bench is at the top of the beginning climb. Great trail for a fall hike with the kiddos.

Great trail. Probably some of the best views of any trail in Huntsville at the top. Highly recommend for all skill levels.

After breaking away from the other trail heads his hike is STEEP. Not the easy hike I was looking for. After gaining the altitude at the beginning the hike becomes easy but that first part was a steady climb. On the way back I took the West Bluff Trail which gave the best views off the hill.

This trail is a good one that I do on a regular basis. There are several good lookouts, especially near the power line. Good trees for eno hammocks and I see people relaxing up there pretty frequently. My dog likes this trail a lot too.
