Getting There

The first part of this trail is a bit steep, but once you're out of the spruce forest, the rest of the hike is pleasant and takes you along the ridge. Once on the ridge, there are places where the trees open up and there are great views of the surrounding mountains.

Good hike but definitely leash your dog considering steep cliffs. I wouldn’t say moderate either. More on the difficult side.

short steep hike. Some big steps to take going up and down. Great viewpoint fairly soon but keep going to the pond at the end. cardio wormout. The entrance is gravel on the right just before Liberty Fall Recreation Area. go there to see the falls.
