Good like. Long with a lot of hills I definitely challenged myself. Great views along the way definitely made it worth the effort. The trail was hard to find in spots because of a layer of fresh snow, but this park is usually packed, and the snow and cold kept people away so I had the park almost all to myself. So I can’t complain too much

Nice hike, but the trail is longer then advertised. Wear hiking boots, parts of the trail is rocky. Great workout for the beginner.

This trail description is very misleading. This was not a 2.98 mi loop - we walked over 2 miles out on blue/white and we’re told by hikers coming in the opposite direction that we had at least another hour (or 3+ miles) to go before looping back around. Given that the description mentioned a family and dog friendly 3 mile loop, that’s not quite right. We did pass a yellow blaze and perhaps we needed to grab that to shorten the distance, but again that wasn’t in the description. Was still beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed it, I just didn’t want anyone else to have the same questions if following the guidance on this hike description.

Pyramid Mountain holds a very special place in my heart. My parents Lucy & Karl Meyer helped lead the grassroots effort that makes this land available today for so many to enjoy. Lucy’s Overlook of course is my favorite. Peace to al!

Nice leisurely trail, not too difficult uphill and a little rocky in the beginning but heads down to the lake and flattens out. Good for an hour or two outing.

Not the best Pyramid Mountain hike unless you like views of power lines. And the Ruins of Morgan Place were nothing worth hiking to. Bear rock was interesting. The red trail back had more elevation changes than the white trail but avoided the power lines. Forgot that schools were closed today so there were a lot more people out than anticipated.

HikingGreat!

Crowded and almost no one wearing masks, but the trail itself was great! Landscape changed up enough to keep it interesting the whole time, though we might list it as on the easier side of moderate instead of just “easy.”

Heavily trafficked and lots of twats not wearing a mask when passing you. This is easily a moderate hike and not an easy one. It's very rocky and has a some inclines that are all rocky too. I went clockwise and it's a much more difficult trail then going counter so depending on what kind of hike you're looking for you make want to take that into consideration. Part of the trail goes into a field for a little bit which goes away from all trails map for a bit. This trail is very beautiful in the fall with some nice overlooks and rock formations but the people really are a buzz kill.

This trail is marked as easy, and maybe I'm just that much of a beginner, but some of the areas were pretty steep and rocky, especially taking the blue trail up to the Pyramid Mountain overlook. I was just wearing sneakers, and I definitely think boots would have been a better choice. I went at 8:30am on a Saturday, and the lot was about 2/3 full when I got there, but I didn't see many people on the trail, maybe about 10 total in almost two hours. There were some larger groups in the lot as I was leaving. I was with my dog, and I was glad to see that all the other dogs we saw were leashed too.

Incredibly busy at the trail head. Any significant overlook is ruined by the power line cut. Tripod rock is magnificent. I climbed to the top. My friend tossed my 3yo up there with me & he was so happy. Pretty intense climb at the beginning, which was repeated on the back side at the red trail. Definitely a fun hike, the rocky & climbing sections were enough to keep it interesting throughout

Great overall trail. Not too long about 3 1/2 miles with some uphill, downhill & rock scrambling. Nice scenery & not crowded on a weekday. Good for a hiker that likes some challenge but not too much.

Blue - White - Red Striped - Blue All different terrains - nice rock scramble on Red Striped - once you reach tripod rock and pyramid mountain get ready for the crowds. Had two dogs with us and it was challenging for them but they managed. 5 miles

HikingOver grown

Giving this 4 stars only because Lucy’s overlook had trees/leaves blocking the view. It was clearly a high point, but you couldn’t see anything because of the tall foliage growing from 50 feet in front of the lookout point. Trail was easy/moderate. Not crowded at all on a Sunday afternoon in July. Took me 1.5 hours. Bring water with you if it’s hotter than 80 degrees F, and an extra bottle to drink when you get back to the car afterwards. It’s mainly shaded, but you’ll sweat a lot with the climbs and how long it takes. Pay close attention to the map too. If you follow the loop counter clockwise, make sure you turn LEFT, following the white trail, at the giant boulder (i put an image on the images tab, my husband is standing in front of the boulder in a green shirt). Dont turn right to follow the blue trail, it ends at a dead end and will add 1.0 mile to your hike.
