Great hike!! Took Summit Trail starting at adventure park. Good trail and rate of ascent. The top is a bit more steep with more roots. Nice view of the lake at the top.

Great hike! We took the summit trail from the base. At the summit, we hiked another mile on the Lake Solitude trail. Round trip..about 3 hours including time to stop for lunch.

First hike in many years, and I'm a little sore today! Narrow trail with rocks and roots. Like climbing stairs all the way to the top. 2 hrs up, quick lunch and pics then down in little more than an hour. Quiet trail, saw only few other hikers.

Easy to navigate and gradual climb to the summit under an almost consistent canopy of trees makes for a nice walk in the woods. If you have a dog be careful about hydration, streams were almost non-existent.

Little challenging in places, but a gorgeous view awaits at the top. This one was great for our pup (a mastiff)!

This trail was fun and relatively easy. It did get pretty rocky at some points and there were a lot of exposed roots so I would definitely recommend wearing hiking boots. It only got a little steep close to the top. The views at the top were amazing! I just wish the trail was marked better in a few spots, but for the most part it was easy to follow.
