Absolutely gorgeous hike but it is not Easy as this app states. It is almost all uphill and the map lists it as hard. I had to take many stops and was a little beyond my level of experience. That being said it was so beautiful it was worth the effort.

Nice hike during nice weather. Hike to the pond/lake and back for a short one or continue on for the full hike. Great for the puppy too

We loved this hike. Very lightly trafficked, does get busy around noontime though. Peaceful, beautiful views, and a cool historic house (with swings on the porch). Well marked, love that as your going along the trail it tells you where you are on the trail and has arrows to guide you. Perfect for dogs. Highly recommend.

If the elevation gain wasn't so extreme it would be incredible. We got on the wrong trail at some point but the trail is gorgeous and well worth it.

This spot worth checking out just for beautiful drive, about 8 mile hike. Lightly shaded so it can get pretty hot. Pretty busy on the weekends.

Nice little morning hike to the cabin and back. The earlier you go the fewer people. The first 30 min is the roughest and then is smooths out. Lots of loose rock, shaded in the morning for 1/2 the way- very little shade after 1200.
Great for kids and even semi-out of shape adults (once you get past the first 30 min).
