We took Graves Hill up to the Devil’s Soup bowl. It did not disappoint. Was a beautiful day and hike. The hike up the hill was literally breathtaking (ha). Studs are recommended for your boots as the trail was icy.

Second time hiking this trail in a few weeks time. Still beautiful and worth the short drive. Today was also our kids birthday and she wants to be a "survivalist". This was her first big hike with her new boots and gear we got her.

Beautiful trail, but I do recommend bug spray. Some parts of the trail or a little overgrown. Great place to stay in a hammock for the day or just take a morning stroll. I hiked this with my vans on (after noticing I left my boots home). The night before 7-8 hours prior was thunderstorm and lighting. trail conditions were great tho! No mud nothing. 10/10 recommend

HikingOff trail

Very nice trail with options to cross over to other trails. We modified ours by crossing over to the loop around Devils Soup Bowl which is also used by bikes coming up fast behind. But only for approx half way around the bowl. Made for nice moderate hike of 3.4 miles. Note: at Devils Soup Bowl there is a trail that dissects the bowl, versus taking a the loop around, with some fairly step elevation changes which would be a good workout. The return trail back from Devils Soup Bowl has a nice view of a small body of water with two islands. Saw a couple fishing in kayaks.

We walked this trail with our 3 kids ages 7, 6, and 4 and our 2 pups. Fun things to look at and a few fun hills the kids loved to run.
