Fun trail! Difficult for this Florida girl who’s used to flat lands, but definitely worth it! Pretty much the entire hike is upwards, no flat areas. Would definitely hike it again.

Great trail! Steep and rocky. Lots of dogs

One I’d do several times over because it’s easy and more of a nice walk with some Incline :)

Great views of the city from a couple of places in the trail. Lots of elevation (my step counter had me at 39 flights of stairs at the top). $5 parking which you can pay online in advance - Visitor Center did not take cash for parking payment.

This trail is great for beginner hikers. It is well populated, kid- and dog-friendly. It is not flat. It is pretty steep and you may get out of breath. However, it is not long and there's a great view at the top with room for picnics and benches to rest.

$5 parking. must display pass in window. heavy traffick. lots of dogs. the leak is in the middle of the hike which isn't my favorite. but it was a good short hike

Good cardio climb for someone who hasn’t hiked in a while or for younger kids. This time of year, there are many leaves on stones which leads to some slipperiness. Wear appropriate footwear. Beautiful, well maintained and marked trail with many historical plaques along the way.

Pretty much an incline all the way up. Did this on Friday the 13th during the harvest moon. Hoped to see the moon but it stormed on us as we trekked quickly back down the mtn.

Definitely well used trail. Great to see people of all ages & nationalities utilizing this trail. Rocky & demanding , more an athletic event then nature event, though view at top worth it! First time tackling the mountain after hip replacement 4 mos ago
