Hiked this with our dog, a 6yo, and a 9yo- it was definitely challenging but the view from the top was spectacular! There are two false peaks, so be sure to keep going to the third where you find the cairn.

Great winter hike with the dog. Trail was marked well. You will cover a lot of elevation in a short period of time.

Great easy hike, make sure you go to the second peak, as we almost stopped at the first thinking we were at the top. We came up from the mead base conservation Center.

Good intermediate level hike. Rocky and rooty paths, if it was wet (but wasn't today) may be very slippery. All-trails app says it is a 3 mile hike but a sign at the beginning if the hike says it is 4 miles.

Moderate is a good label for this trail. Enjoyed it with my two sons (12 and 13) and my father (almost 70). It's a steady climb the whole way but is not overwhelming. It was a hot and humid day at the base but the trail was shaded the whole way with a beautiful breeze and gorgeous views at the summit. Don't get tricked by the false summit, keep hiking to the summit marker and you'll be rewarded with some beautiful mountain and lake views. It is longer than 3 miles, as others have stated already- the trail marker at the base says 2 miles to the summit.

Easy trail with great views at the top. Perfect family hike. It was a super hot muggy day and the bugs were pretty unforgiving. This would be a great spring hike...lots of potential for small waterfalls along the trail.
