If you hit it at salamander mating season, get ready for a thrill.

Nice little trail, easy quick hike. Good for a trail run since the incline is minimal. Tons of horse poo along the trail

Wouldn't hike it again, but maybe it was just a bad time of year- there were so many flies! It was a really easy hike, during blackberry season I could see it being a wonderful hike. Mostly shaded, but once you get to the meadow it's open space, the view point is a bit disappointing but for the area it was expected(dry). The salamander pond has some serious eutrophication going on and is fenced in for good reason. The foliage makes the hike worth it and I went in June, and there were perhaps hundreds of lizards that crisscross the trail as you're hiking (it's entertaining).

Really nice short hike - Easy to find, lots of parking, nice work out going up and great views at the top. A little crowded for my taste but one of my favorite P'sula hikes
