Great short hike for the family. Sections towards the top are quite steep and the trail Isn’t super well marked but there are many paths near the top. Very rewarding views - definitely recommend.

Lovely hike that is short while offering fantastic views. If you're a novice hiker, this is the hike for you. The trail is on private land, so make sure to be respectful by carrying out trash, and sticking to the marked trail

One of my favorite easy hikes in this area. Great for beginners with a beautiful view. This trail is only open during the week days so traffic is minimal if you do hike it. we hiked here on Memorial Day, brought lunch and hung out at the summit for a few hours and we were the only ones there. Beautiful spot!

Great trail through the woods. A number of switchbacks makes it pretty easy going. Lots of vistas as you ascend to the summit. The final leg of the hike is a scramble but nothing too crazy. My daughter did it in crocs. Took us just under half an hour to reach the summit but we weren’t in a hurry. Views were worth it.

Great Hike! Great View! Arrogant property owner. Claims to be freedom fighter, but apparently did not fight for free views

The Views are Great!! It’s Not a “Difficult” trail persay but it does get your heart racing for the first 3/4 and there are plenty of opportunities to lose your footing lots of roots, bald bedrock, ankle breakers and muddy spots But nothing trekking poles and good hikers couldn’t handle. Definitely a worth it though loved it!!

This was a great hike. Several beautiful views on the way to the summit. It was a little bit of a challenge for our 3 year old, but she did great. Lots of rocks and roots, but totally worth it!

The trail starts on an incline until you get to the top. it definitely had my heart racing and my legs burning and I love every minute of it. the view is so worth the hike. I will definitely do it again in the fall.

This tail was a quick climb that provided some great views from the top. You start going up almost as soon as you get out of the car but the climb isn’t bad especially if you take your time. We had a little trouble finding the narrow trail that winds around and takes you to the very top but once we found it the climb was easy.

Trail is heavily eroded which makes it much more challenging both up and down.
