Beautiful day, amazing long range views, really interesting mystery around who built the stone walls and nice short hike. Path one way and stone step the other.

this trail was gorgeous and had great views but it is 100% only easy for established hikers. it's a moderate on the beginner's scale.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful, clean, not too crowded for a Saturday, easy trail. I went counterclockwise, starting to the right, which allowed me to go up the stone steps first and down the mountain to the parking lot (instead of up the side of the mountain and down the stone stairs to the parking lot). I would not have thought much of this except that I passed a few hikers on their climb (as I was descending) who commented on how steep the mountain was to walk up. NOTE to the puppy hikers: The stairs to the overlook are GRATED.

Very good with two young kids and a puppy. Not long enough for my husband and I but the kiddos could do it by themselves but had great views!

HikingGreat!Rocky

Great trail for my pup and I to do. If you aren’t using the map and want to do the full route, make sure you keep right at the stone wall to keep on the North Face trail instead of going straight to the tower. You’ll have the opportunity to see the tower later if you choose. Trail is rocky so watching your footing is key. The view at the west overlook is absolutely beautiful. Pup parents should be aware there are grated stairs to the overlook. My pup wasn’t a fan but navigated them like a champ.

I didn’t complete the entire trail this time due to a new puppy with me, but I love these trails! I have completed them several times.

I am without a doubt a novice hiker so I chose this trail as an option to get a good view without necessarily winding up in a Blair Witch scenario. Well my friends. I’m alive to tell the tale but be cautioned. Couch to 5K this is not. 1. The trail is rooty and rocky to boot. We found ourselves on hands and knees once or twice scrambling up one particularly challenging piece. 2. The ascent isn’t too bad but it is relentless. You spend at least 75% of the trek going up. For someone who is plague atrophied this was quite the stair master challenge for me. 3. The western loop piece is a trail that is narrow and unforgiving. To your left is a quick and long roll down the mountain side. It’s grown up a decent amount as well, so with roots and plants to dodge, it seems like a test of balance at time. Finally, if you bring a four legged pal, the stairs to the overlook are grated and our small footed friend had to be carried. All in all, my wife and I really enjoyed this anniversary hike (one year wedded today) but we are glad we managed to chance a second one off the mountain. Are the views worth it? Maybe? The bragging rights among your similarly plague atrophied friends sure are though.

Beautiful loop with a few options to take along the way. Lots of stones and short steep areas to navigate. Our Chocolate Lab enjoyed it!

Nice little trail the stone wall and tower were really cool and the overlook was amazing. North loop section is narrow and overgrown I recommend detouring around it. Don’t miss the overlook with the steel and wood stairs!

Lots of stairs but nice walk up to the tower. After reaching the tower, we took the right trail, which connects to the West Overlook Trail. That was a very quiet trail with some great views through the trees. Skinny trail in spots and mostly uphill, but lots of wildflowers.
