Decided to check this out over the weekend. It was beautiful in the snow. There was a layer of snow covering ice which got the best of us at times (wear spikes during winter) My yaktraks didn’t cut it. It was an easy hike that I’ll definitely do again!

It is dog friendly, however we had the only dog on leash.

If you’re looking for an easy hike that won’t take up your day this is for you! Nice fresh air and a pretty view if you take the red trail. Enjoy!

Trail is well maintained. A great trail for trail running with the micro/nano spikes. Seems overly dog friendly. They have at least 2 dog depot stations throughout system. Came across at least 3 dogs off leash and a handful of poop piles frozen to the trail. With its proximity to town and its easy paths, I can definitely see this being a very crowded spot during the summer months.

I would truly consider this to be an easy hike. It never gets very steep and when it does it's very slight and only for a short amount of time. There are about 3 great viewing areas. Make sure to go up the rocky knob for the best view. There's also a cool little bridge to nowhere for a good photo op. One of my favorite walks in the woods around here as it's never crowded, easy for the views and offers lots of cool little features through-out the hike.

Well maintained and documented trail. Nice diversity of trees, plants, path styles and views. The stretch of the red trail to the peak is the steepest path but definitely doable.
