Perfect place for an easy hike. Close to town, easy access, great to take out of town visitors, families, etc for a beautiful, short hike. Beautiful views from the top, well maintained...what's not to like?

Well-maintained trail. I suggest this be edited to be considered an easy trail... definitely not moderate. Took maybe 45 minutes? Very beautiful views even in bad weather.

Trail is pretty steep! Thankfully they had little benches all the way up it. The view you see at the very top with the highway isn't anything super special.. but if you go further and take the Wilson M, M&M trail there's an awesome view at the top! And it's only a little ways longer. Also an awesome view on the hike back down!
