I would recommend this trail to any age. We started at the beach and hiked the secret spot trail then connected a few more. The beginning has a little bit of incline but overall is a nice trail with great views. Saw many dear while hiking.

Wish the trails were more visible and well-connected. Definitely more of a walk than a hike.

Easy hike beginning from the near the boat ramp area. Early section of trail is paved and accessible by all before it kicks up on a little more strenuous dirt trial. There are a lot of mountain lions in the area and it is recommended to hike with more than one person and keeps dogs on leashes.

Fairly easy hike (half paved, half gravel path), amazing rewards! The whole trail is great views! We went on a beautiful Saturday and no one else was on the trail - we had the whole trail to ourselves. A must do if you're in the area :)

One of my favorites. Spring with a little snow is my favorite times to hike this one.
