Easy trail. Good for kids. I did see a bear cub on the trail. Shady in most places. Some views of the lake. There were only a few other hikers on the trail and a mountain biker.

Doesn’t say stroller friendly but absolutely doable with jogging stroller.

Easy trail, but please beware of letting your dogs off leash. I did this hike last weekend and my dog ate something toxic that caused her to go into liver failure and unfortunately passed away. She also got ticks.

If you stick to the road trail it’s an easy hike for 1 hr 15min with very little elevation

I would say the moderate rating is for advanced/experienced hikers. I love hiking but am not in the kind of shape l used to be. This hike was definitely steep and challenging and if you don't hike a lot then I would look for another alternative.

Beautiful on a Spring morning butterflies everywhere. Also A LOT of other bugs too including tons of mosquitoes. I will definitely be hiking the upper trail to the top of Goat Mountain before it gets too hot just didn’t want to attempt it alone. Recommend as a low impact casual hike for all ages.

Enjoyed our walk on this trail. Lots of clearing of trees and debris. Nice views of the lake. Would rate as an easy trail.

Only went half way. A lot of trees being cut and piles everywhere. Blocked rest of trail. Good views of lake and area. Very pretty.
