Definitely longer than the description. Needed to take other shorter trails to get to the trail head. Great hike.

It was a good trail. Not suitable for young kids because you really had to pay attention in spots. A challenging moderate for sure. Definitely enjoyed it.

GO EAST.. This was an easy hike if you go East. If you go in the other direction it earns its moderate rating. I really enjoyed the ledge the best, more so than the summit. This was an enjoyable hike but in comparison to Indian Head Trail and Mt Potash.

Not what my wife and I expected and we are experienced hikers! There was as much climbing as hiking and as older citizens we were challenged by the trail, especially toward the top, both up and down! Glad we survived the full experience. THIS trail took much longer than expected ann was strenuous! Everyone me met on the trail shared their experience that it was difficult and more strenuous​ than expected!

No traffic on the mountain, was a good hike for a moderate physical challenge. Part of the loop was decommissioned but another path was provided for smooth travel. Was disappointed that the peak of the hike was not labeled, and trees were on the top of the mountain. There were ledges near the top of the mountain that provided a great unobstructed view of the neighboring mountains.

Great trail not too challenging but enough to break a sweat. Just a warning to future hikers the trail is poorly marked and the mileage is inaccurate as well. Not enough of a negative to keep me away, but just a heads up

Great hike, relatively easy. Pay close attention to the markers as the trail is not well marked.
