Very pretty with nice 360 views. Downfall- it tends to be decently crowded

Really easy trail till you get to the top. Well paved and rocky/easy to follow. At the top there’s a part that’s pretty steep which you have to scramble/climb to get up- very possible if you take it slow.

Very nice hike with a trail that is 'worth the work'. Went with a 6 and 4 year old - while many other families went without major issue we did have one skinned knee and a few 'slips' on the gravel near the top. Stopped for a snack at the top - beautiful views and plenty of benches.

Aloha inter webs, I really enjoy this quick trip walk around a giant rock. Well maintained trail, busy day but people were practicing social distancing. I did not climb to the top this time but a lot of others did. #letsgoforawalk

Nice little trail. Loads of rocks to scramble and climb. Kids had a lot of fun. Not a hard trail or very long but a great little hike. And very pretty considering it’s right by town.

Although the weather has been beautiful out and is forecasted to be nice through this weekend, we are advising trail users to stay off the unpaved trails. Due to the amount of snow and ice melting there will be muddy conditions. Please respect the trails during the melting periods. Thank you.
