It was mostly flat terrain the whole time so it's nice for a more relaxed walk in the forest (as oppose to a "hard" hike). There was a small peak but it overlooked farm fields and roads so it didn't feel like I got really into nature...

This has a lot of rocks on the orange part of the trail. Starts off blue and a nice walk along the river. Two nice fields you go along when the orange trail starts...then the rocks and what a climb. Nice increase in elevation and beautiful views at the top. It is rightly rated a hard and make sure you have ample rock walking shoes.

Love this hike, it's a challenging start with boulders to climb up to the view. I am disappointed that people have spray painted the mountain at the top. It has a great gradual down trail, through forest, opens up to fields before it ends at the river.

we started by heading right/straight at the first decision from the parking lot since it had the most rapid elevation. it was medium and large rocks heading up. at about 1/2 mile was a great viewing area. Headed up further and trail leveled off. Heading down was less rapid elevation and not as challenging as the first half mile. one portion was along the edge of a field. The final stretch was along the river, which was a nice view.
