Beautiful views, definitely recommend taking the turn through the cedar swamp, it’s really beautiful. Little crowded on a weekend and starting to get a little buggy.

Clear trails. We spotted some woodpeckers, frogs, hawks, and interesting insects. It was a great day with young boys!

Very icy. Would not do this hike this time of year without traction aid such as Yaktrax.

4.08mi on the monument trail loop. Very icy on uphill and downhill patches of the trail. Took our time and had fun with it. Trail is gorgeous with fantastic views. Saw a beautiful deer run by within feet of us!

No fee in the winter. We had a great time! Trail was snow covered. Thankfully we had traction cleats and hiking poles! A must! It was lightly snowing. Trail is well marked. Lots of scramble.

Good hike! Very windy when we went and a slick layer of ice on everything early in the morning - mostly cleared up by 2pm. It can get crowded! Recommend bringing good hiking shoes and micro spikes/hiking poles if you’re iffy on the ice!
