Nice trail, a little slippery in spots, which are hard to see because of the new snow fall. Well marked. I took the left hand trail beginning so the view was 30 minutes into the hike vs 15 headed to the right. Beautiful view!!

Very quiet place on a Thursday morning. Fantastic hike. Lots of rocks and roots. Multiple woodpecker sightings. Pretty well marked. Beaver in the lower pond put on a great show for us.

Fantastic little hike. I got to see people of all ages, and capabilities on this trail. Lots of dogs and kids. A very friendly place to spend a little time. It was clean, well marked and definitely good for any level of hiker. OH, and the views were awesome. Such a blessing. I highly recommend it.

Pretty easy to do even for a beginner hiker. Or if you’re old and not in peak shape. Dogs are welcome on the trailer please pick up after them. I nearly stepped in a huge pile.

The trail was VERY rocky and steep but the pay out is worth it! I would not reccomend the trail for beginners or small children as there is some very narrow, rocky places...or without the proper footwear

A great beginner trail, made even better by the beautiful foliage. Enough to work up a sweat but not too difficult, an awesome trail!

Good views on either side of climb. Blue trail loops around top of hill, yellow cuts blue in half, orange goes to little pond but rest of that trail is closed now to private property

So me and my family went to the swipe trail parking lot but we mistakenly went to the trail nearby called Winam trail or something like that, sadly we missed the great view of jerry Hill. Winam trail was good too but it doesn’t have a loop so you have to walk back unfortunately.

HikingGreat!

Did this trail on Saturday, 9/5. While this was a quick and easy hike for someone who has been hiking a lot this summer, it might be more challenging for younger kids or those looking for just a stroll in the woods. Beautiful views.

Great hike with light incline and an excellent view. There are a couple offshoot trails which are also good to extend the hike
