Hiked this yesterday with my DH and BIL. A quick hike even though I am five months pregnant to a nice view for minimal effort! A few short steep sections but nothing overly strenuous - Made it up and down in less than an hour. This is a nice wooded hike to do if you're looking for something short and sweet...also great to add to your Chester Challenge checklist! ;-)

Pretty cool little hike up Stewart. A great payoff for very little work. You really don't even have time to break a sweat. We did this in order to complete the Chester Challenge and also, as suggested to see the sunset. Indeed it was a great place to see the sunset over Loon Lake and was very quick and simple to get back out. Trail well marked and only took 10-15 minutes to get back to trail head. Mid July, very buggy. Dry trail.

Great views, especially given the amount of time it took to reach the summit (~15 minutes).

This is a very short trail but has great views! Perfect to do with Kipp Mountain right down the road and some of the other Chester Challenge mountains for a full day of hiking. I brought my dog and they were nice short walks for him.
