Not really a trail, more like a sidewalk. However, it gets 4 stars because of location, views and interpretive signage along the way. Some steep if returning to Visitors Center, only a caution for those that aren't altitude acclimated.

Short hike, easy hike with good reward. It is what it is- walking on cement but chapel is awesome and academy grounds are very nice.

Very easy (cement trail), but still really nice. 4 stars for being a good trail with great views, not for technical level or buried-in-the-woods factor.

super easy trail, short but with some good views. Starts at the Visitors center and winds around a good sized hill to the Cadet Chapel. Places to sit (park benches) along the trail, an overlook, and some small wildlife.
