Great little hike through the forest! Unfortunately it was too foggy the morning I hiked for me to see anything from the top. I'll be going back on a better day to see what I'm sure are incredible views.

I would definitely say this is a Moderate level trail! Pretty steep in places, but the views are totally worth it!

This was a nice short hike. It does have some steep spots and a lot of rocks,roots, and things to walk over.little ones have to pay attention or they may trip. We went in June at the trail was quite wet, but they had logs and wood planks to get over the wet parts. We had a 3 and 5 year old and they were fine. The 5 year old shot right up the trail easily. The view is fantastic for such a short little hike.

I took my 4 year old daughter for her first hike at Elephant Head. It was great for this age group. Nice hike with a beautiful view!
