First time here with the fam, we all loved it, we love how theirs different marked trails so if you wanna go easy or go hard you can choose. The view was gorgeous ! Wasn’t excepting it to be so long , but overall I loved it . Their was easy path but also steep ones if you like a challenge.

Perfect short hike, little over 2 miles, if you still want the uphill scramble but short on time, enter from the parking lot to the left of the lake for the best uphill trek.

I learned I’m really out of shape, but the view was worth the really high heart rate. Easy to follow trails and my dog did pretty well on the rocky parts.

This is a great place for the family, a good view of various mountains, it is partly full of rocks, you have to be careful, but it is excellent to go up and down.

Great hiking location, be ready for rocky paths and amazing views. Features a quarry on the backside of the beaten path as well. Highly recommend!

Did the blue trail, Very rocky, most hikes don’t really feel like a workout except this one did. I would recommend if you enjoy that sort of thing. Pretty difficult for small children I would imagine. The views are nice and peaceful. Would go again!

Great trail for a quick hike. Some parts near the reservoir were a bit flooded and tricky to traverse, but otherwise the trail is in great shape!

Great trail! My 5 year old son and I did this hike this morning...it was pretty buggy but there has been a lot of rain lately. Great elevation, rock scrambling and switchbacks...definitely a moderate hike for those who are not avid hikers. A lot of large loose rock, need to be careful to not lose your footing. Great views - we will definitely do this again. Only down side, it was pretty populated and had to pull over many times to let people pass who were coming the opposite way.
