This was a great trail! Very well maintained and easy to access. I loved the trail map and self guided tour you can pick up at the beginning. It was VERY steep in some parts, but well worth it for that gorgeous view!

Went with 3 kids (8,7, 5) and it was a great distance and had nice variety, good vista mid-trail, fun bridge and we even saw 2 deer.

The scenery is absolutely incredible! The first hill is a pretty rough climb, but once you get to the top- and the Flint Hills roll out in front of you- you can't wait to climb it again.
