Great little easy trail with a view! Lots of connecting trails if you want to lengthen your hike.

Nice little trail for a quick walk in the woods. Trail is wide enough that 3 of us could walk side by side. Mostly flat. Well maintained & marked. We stayed on the Big Loop, only about 1.5 miles (good enough on a drizzly, chilly day like today). Next time I’d like to check out Hedgehog Mountain, which connects. Remember your bug spray!

If you get to the top of the mountian, it has the best view in the greater portland area. you can see the mountians off in the distance. There is some areas that are partially cut trails that are not really trails. Good for a short trek for the day. moderate hills.
