I've done this hike a few times now. Relatively short and easy to moderate for a beginner hiker. Not a very pretty hike until you get to the top (lots of debris and trash left over from what I think was a saw mill?) a little washed out when I went in the beginning of April but great when I got to the top! Trail markings get a little confusing. Cool little area to watch the birds migrate complete with Adirondack chairs.

Head up the logging road at the end of Summit Dr. About a third of the way up, enjoy some poetic justice with old abandoned logging equipment rusting as the forest grows around (or on!) it. The trail cat the top is quite pleasant, winding in a sparse forest, on a carpet of moss. You will want to explore the spur trails for all the viewpoints, but note that one of those spurs is a steep, forested hike down the other side of the hill (stay on the trail and head the signs indicating the area supposedly is home to unexploded ordinance from an old air base). While the area and viewpoints aren't extremely scenic, lots of sitting areas and fire pits organically assembled over the years make the hill a nice natural relaxing spot for a family and friend outing.
