Really nice, short hike close to home with great views at the top. Gate at entrance, small sign says "hikers welcome." Follow dirt road to blue "trail" sign. Be aware of surroundings, went during bear hunting season and encountered a scared, running bear.
Steady incline, slightly rocky towards the top. Watch your step, loose rocks. Bench at the top to rest while taking in the view.

Really good cardiovascular exercise! Very nice for a newbie to be able to reach the top and see that magnificent view. Trail head is down the road (entrance road) a little distance to gate.

Nice short trek with even trail. Steady climb. Not a lot of tricky stepping and gorgeous view at the top.

Park at gate, (a very small handwritten sign welcomes hikers on gate) continue on dirt road until blue "trail" sign. Steady incline, narrow trail, lovely view, stone bench at the top. A quiet quick hike. We were bothered by deer flies.
