The views are gorgeous!! Probably my favorite in the gorge. It's MUCH less crowded than all the other trails too which is very nice. We only saw 2 other couples the 3 hours we were there. Definitely a steep climb, but very worth it and not long. Much of the trail is flat and rather wet, so wear waterproof shoes/boots if you have them. The guy that lets you park on his land for $5 is super nice and tells you the history.

This private trail was awesome!!! You can tell that the owner who maintains it really loves the trail. Just FYI he opened a piece of his land for parking and it is $5 if you want to park there.

As for the actual hike well it was worth every drop of sweat!! The view on top was breathtaking! You experience various kinds of terrain and the hike progressively gets more challenging as you get closer to the top! We also loved that even though it was Labor Day we basically had the whole trail to ourselves. Only on our way down did we run into some other hikers. The entire hike up and back took us two hours but we are fast walkers and barely stop.

Highly recommend this hike and I hope that this trail remains open for many years to come. Myself, my husband and our pup would love to come back.

Fun beginner trail. First half flat and manicured. Hill was steep but paved. Over all fun,quiet and scenic. Not the level we hoped but very nice short day hike. Took 2.5-3 hrs. Great for kids
