The scenic overlook in the parking has good views over the city. Once down on the trail, you can ski or snowshoe off trail. There are plenty of moose in the woods so be careful

Even though there isn't many epic views it is still a great trail to connect with other trails.

I've taken the dogs out to this wide trail near the Flattop trailhead. It can get a little busy on occasion.

Great hike. I did power line, to middle fork then back onto power line. Absolutely beautiful and not too strenuous. It was about 9.5 miles total.

If you have decent snow, park a car at Hilltop Ski Area or Prospect heights and start at Flat Top to access PowerLine trail to north. Four hour ski. At Prospect, head toward stopsign in at road to find trail down to Hilltop. Fun!
