Hiked this trail on March 23rd. Used snowshoes. We took a side trail to the Hooper mine to make it a loop. Beautiful views from the top. Great place for a picnic in the summer.

Hiked this trail in November with my two boys ages 5 and 3 along with 4 friends all with kids. It provides challenging terrain for the little ones and I can see why it wound be better for snowshoeing. I would not hike this trail again. Too short for adults and too rugged for little hikers. The view is nice and it is a very short climb.
