We did the outer boundaries on each side of rt 9 and also did the summit trail put on about 7 miles total. Overall it was an easy quiet hike would be a good one for a family just starting out or someone just wanting a good easy hike or a run.
Nice local hike. Good view at the top. Short but sweet. Did hike in the rain. Couple puddles but drainage was ok.
Easy dog friendly nice view but not stunning
It was an easy hike for the kids. My 2yo had a blast climbing on the rocks of the intermediate trails. Playground was fun for them. We left w happy kids so definitely worth a repeat trip.
Well taken care of trail, easy for children to hike. Also has a playground for kids. Downside is it's a state park, so you have to pay to get in.
It's basically a hill, but it is still a cool place to romp around. I often trail run to make it more challenging. It is pretty steep, but only 300' of prominence. Nice stream and waterfalls in the back. Oh ya, and great views too. Great place for spotting eagles, hawks, falcons, etc.
nice hike. mountain biking also
Perennial favorite. Easy, leisurely hike that makes the surroundings more accessible. Frequent birding at the top from local organizations, cross country skiers all winter.
Some areas need their posts fixed or maps replaced but other than that it's lovely! And the reward view is incredible. The mountain top is a chill place for a mid hike nap on a nice overcast day!
