This is a nice hike (with ups and downs). Just to be clear, there are no trail markers (contrary to Lookout Mountain), but the trails are easy to follow and you cannot get lost. Highly recommended as the wildflowers are in season now notably notch-leaved phacelia and asters. Bonus: you can stop in a Prayer Pavilion for a short meditation at the end of the hike (open 24 hours).

There is a great trail here but this recording doesn’t take it. Had to give up because several times the route leads up the side of a mountain. It should be re-recorded and then it would be spectacular.

Moderate? This is super easy and short; a lot of highway noise. However, it's fun to go up and down repeatedly rather than straight up then back down.

This was a nice trail, except for a hostile guy who had his dog off leash. It was mostly easy to moderate, but you cannot get to the peak without hand scrambling, which we were unable to do because we had our dogs with us. There was a lot of dogpoo to step over. It really needs signage to remind folks to keep their dogs on leash and to clean up after themselves. No bathrooms or trash cans. Directions through AllTrails took us to the church parking lot, but there is a culdesac on the other side you can go to if you’re worried you’ll get locked in.
