Took my husband and I 2.5 hours but we are out of shape. A lot of wildflowers that haven't quite bloomed fully yet (May). Parts of the trail were muddy and you had to work around, so wear proper footwear. Some of the trail is shady and some full sun. A nice mix of plant life and a good workout.

Really great hike. The trail is pretty well kept and there are a lot of different sceneries. I gave it 4 Stars because some of the markings on the trees were really faded making hard to know which direction to go. But overall great trail. I would absolutely hike it again.

Awesome hike. Tons of different sceneries including steep rope climb, marsh, streams, open grass and beautiful forest. Definitely a hidden gem.

this is a really cool area with great trails and loops. the loop around the top of the mountain can get a little confusing but has great signs. the area has several different types of forests and Wildlife, would definitely recommend it again.

Great Place! Neat rocks at the top with a rope to pull you up the grade. I have a 8 year old daughter that loves this. I grew up in the area and never knew this trail was nearby. I would definitely recommend this to any!
