This one can get a little technical toward the trail end with lots of roots and rocks to care for as the trail narrows. The trail is also largely hidden under lots of vegetation once you get about 3 miles in, but altogether beautiful hike. Lovely views both up to the peak and down toward town. Surprisingly heart pumping at times - 1800 ft elevation gain didn't seem like it would be much over the course of 5 miles, but it got slightly spicy from time to time.

Absolutely beautiful. We started the trail at 7 am and had amazing weather. Sadly we didn't see any wildlife but were amazing with the cleanliness and beauty of the trail. We are moderate hikers and we managed it well. Being water and snacks and be prepared to stop and take pictures. Saw plenty of dogs that were doing great and loving it. Highly recommend

Gorgeous trail. The fern lined trails are breathtaking, the views are just amazing!! Just enough up and down to make it a great workout. At some points the trail is quite rocky. We did come across a large black bear near the trail, he wasn't too interested in us, and one deer. Really enjoyable!!!!!

Beautiful cedar, pine and fern-lined trail at an altitude to keep you cool in the summer.
