Great hike, completed on 4/22. You can spend a lot of time exploring side trails and side roads, as we did which brought our round trip mileage up to 8.7 miles. This trail starts out very steep, maybe for the first 3/4 - 1 mile is a continuous incline. Afterwards, however, it tapers off to a moderate hike. Keep eyes out for wildlife.

Great trail! Nice and quiet, with a beautiful frozen waterfall you can get behind. You follow the creek most of the way, so it was nice for my dog. I made it two miles in before it became impassible without snowshoes (3/21/18). Loved it though!

Trail was ok, was definitely expecting a little bit more. It could be because of the winter season and everything was dry. Also kind of lost the trail at the end and ended up just climbing straight up the mountain to get to the peak.

Mid December and cold with snow on the trail and frozen waterfalls. Good time

Great trail and a quick way to get up to the top for some great views. Took 3.5 hours total. Tough beginning but flattens out a bit until the end.
