Moderate hike, connecting to Canfield Mtn. trail system This is a nice climb, with views through the trees. This trail connects with the Canfield Mtn trail system. Presently there is only one blowdown, it appears the local horse clubs maintain the trail well. This is also accessed by horseback from Dalton Gardens area.

Nice trail for jogging!

Little Birthday hike by myself Sunday July 2nd morning. Beautiful hike. Lots of shade cover so not too hot. Lots of people out and back, even at 7:30am, but still serene. Strong hike. Definitely continue past the "trail end" for the 0.9 mile hike to the top.

We had a big group going with several dogs and various levels of hiking ability and everyone enjoyed it! The trail does split off in a variety of different directions but we stayed right the first time, and then took the trails that seemed more gradual and less steep. It was a longer hike, but everyone was able to make it to the top. The views are pretty good as well!
