This is a great trail which offers beautiful views. The first part is pretty flat, then you begin to climb the mountain and it gets steep real quick.

Quick hike for amazing views. First mile is flat and a quick warm, second mile climbs! The summit is in the woods, but multiple view points make up for it!

Great trail! First part is pretty flat then you begin to climb the mountain. Great trail for a dog- our 90lbs lab made it up and back just fine! Took us 2hrs 45min with lunch at the top.

HikingGreat!MuddyOver grown

Great views!! Must see!!! Easy in the beginning but when it starts to go uphill there’s no break. But the views make up for the challenging parts of the trail. The trail by the beaver pond was muddy and over grown but I don’t think it was too bad.

Great trail for beginner to intermediate fitness level. Flat for the first mile and a half then a moderate incline with a few flats. The view is worth it!!!!

Great trail, good views at the top. Got caught in a fast moving thunderstorm on top which made us leave a little earlier. Good views if you continue past the first clearing.
