Staging Area at the End of Kilkare Rd.

took 1h45m to complete. good workout. spotty shade and lots of sun in may. decent amount of bugs along the way. trail is well maintained. great place for a quick hike if you live in the area. follow the path laid out, the descent is more gradual compared to the ascent

Nice little hike with great views from the top of the surrounding area. Mountain biking is listed as an activity, but bikes aren't permitted on Woodland Trail. I suggested an edit. The rest of the trails are fair game and I look forward to coming back with the bike. Today was my first time here, so I just brought the dog for a short hike. The ridge sees a lot more sun than some of the other places I've been hiking, so it was refreshing not to have to deal with as much mud from the rainy season.

Great trail. Nice incline to max elevation.

One bit of advice though:
PLEASE IF YOU BRING A DOG, PICK UP AFTER THEM!!!

Nothing ruins a hike/walk more than stepping in some lazy ones dog crap.
