This hike offers some of the most amazing environment changes. One minute you're in a forest, the next you're in a field full of wildflowers. The signs posted can get a little confusing, so I'd definitely recommend snapping a pic of the trail map or visiting the State Park office to get one of their printed copies (there's one located at the beginning of the Steep Ravine trail). Be sure to bring plenty of water, snacks, and sturdy shoes!

Amazing vistas and old growth groves a very short distance from the city. There are many trails to choose from making it easy to hike different distances. Incline is gradual on most of the mountain making this ideal for trail running.
