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).

Great family hike. Took my 4 year old nephew, and he had no problems. Views from the top were great.

Great hike! Trails are well maintained and marked. Some steep grades but manageable for all levels The views from the top were spectacular of Loon Lake and Gore in the distance! Quick hike as well!

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.
