Hiking

First .9 mile is very easy, spikes work well until the last .1 mile,needs snowshoes . Very windy at the summit. No view because it’s a rainy day, would love to return on a clear day

Good beginner/intermediate winter hike. Spikes are highly recommended, especially in the last .25 mile. Pretty quiet except for all the snowmobiles. Take the summit loop - best views are on the shorter trail!

Great trail with a little ice (it’s winter duh) but fantastic views at the top. Easy hike with a few rocks at the top.

Broke the trail out the other day. Don’t need to be worried about mud or ice for a little while. At the moment, conditions are deep fluffy snow.

Love this trail. Starts out very easy, but it is a steady climb to the top. I would put it on the harder side of moderate. There is a good amount of scrambling and steep switchbacks in the top third of the climb. It rained all day yesterday so some parts were slippery. Views were great. The trail is well marked and maintained. There were two volunteers working on the trail at the top. I made the hike longer by taking the red trail nature path on the way back down. It meets back up with the blue trail and back down to the parking lot.

Large parking lot, picnic tables, even a porta potty. Lots of cars, thankfully trail didn't seem that busy. Marked well, some up, great views from the overlook! Enjoyed the nature trail also!

the beginning of this trail will pull you into a false sense of security. it's gets tough near the end. but me and the dog loved climbing up and down the rocks. worth the view.
