Our 5 and 3 year old enjoyed finding walking sticks and drawing with them in the little bit of snow there was left! Quick and easy hike!

Its a short walk but offers spectacular views and tons of small wildlife. For the amount of effort it is quite the reward. Don't miss this hike!

Fantastic views, tons of chipmunks, great for a warm up/cool down hike, or a leisurely stroll.

Perfect hike to take anyone on. So easy and ridiculously scenic. You could easily spend an hour or more enjoying the views, eating a meal, or watching the outdoor weddings that seem to happen all day long.

The highlight for my four kids was feeding the chipmunks. The views were also spectacular! Next time I’m bringing lunch as there are picnic tables at the top. We went on a Sunday so there was a lot of traffic and a lot of kids feeding the chipmunks. Please remember to approach the chipmunks quietly as to not scare them all away from others who are enjoying the chipmunks. This was a favorite and highly recommend for families.

Easy, even if you are out of shape. Beautiful views, but they all have towns and/or roads in them.

Loved it. Great for kids (ours are 15 months to 12 yrs and all completed it), pretty views, and lots of fun. We saw a lady with a broken ankle doing the trail, so this is a great trail for anyone. Have fun and enjoy the view of the lake!

5 stars for the chipmunks and the view at the lookout. Other than that, this is just a short walk around a loop and lots of dead trees. I’d be worried taking a smaller child due to the drop offs. The lookout and chipmunks are closest if you go to the left from the parking lot.

CHIPMUNKS AT THE LOOK OUT VIEW!! They will come up and eat right out of your hands, they are all around. Beautiful view on the trail as well, short and easy! Definitely recommend! Take some black bird seed the chipmunks love that stuff! Or any nuts!

It was very crowded on a Saturday, so that is to be expected but the trail is pretty narrow. I had to keep wrangling my dog and atepping out of the way from people and other dogs. Also the chipmunks arent scared of people because they get fed so much but subsequently, they arent scared of the dog and will go right up to them and there were a couple times I was emotionally preparing myself for twenty people to watch my corgi carnage and cute little chipmunk. This didnt happen but if your dog is rodent obsessed this is not the trail for you. A dog in front of us barked non stop at them and they wouldnt flee so he just kept doing it. Also be prepared to be asked to take pictures of a lot of tourists. Great place for a hop out of the car and look at the views but I wouldnt hike again...

Awesome easy hike! My kids 2,4,6,8 loved feeding the chipmunks and requested we go back the next day. Grandparents loved the hike too! The views were amazing! Couple fun spots to stop for a picnic and my kids enjoyed the large shelter made of logs.
