I hiked this with my 6 and 8 year old in an hour and a half. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and saw many deer. The elevation change wasn't too tough and the rocky bluff was fun to climb on. There is a particularly good view of Lake Catherine from the top of the mountain as well. We will definitely go back.

Tried this trail for the first time today. Really enjoyed it. I'm not in the best of shape but I'm trying to push myself. This trail had some challenges for this 40 year old gal trying to get fit but the rewards were worth it! My husband and I finished in under 2 hours.

Lake Catherine offers up one of a kind scenery and something of a hike. I did a rather large loop, of group of loops when I went. It was incredible!!! A great challenging hike with a switch of scenery here and there. This part of the hike was awesome, simple, and relaxing! It offered a peace, not many people out on the trails.

Needed some early morning solitude and got it with this trail. Spent about two hours , moderate terrain. Was alone the entire time and it was just what I was looking for. Only a few Vistas but varied areas of terrain and foliage with wildlife to match.

To me, this was the most boring of all the hikes at Lake Catherine. It's still a good trip for a family but I'd definitely do it with the other trails at Lake Catherine.
