Well marked and we'll maintained trail. to two good views at the top. Steady uphill climb the whole way, but plenty of benches along the way, and a nice view about half way up. Easy to find with plenty of parking at the trail head, would do again!

Great trail and we enjoyed it more than our family expected to. Lots of folks on the trail this time of year, great views and I would love to come back in the spring to witness the flowering plants.

Medium to difficult hike. Elevation climb is pretty steep. One of the best maintained trails. Gorgeous scenery and overlooks. The leaves color change in early October was stunning.

Quite a climb up but worthwhile when you get to the panoramic views. Speedy going down. Lots of folks enjoying the trail along with their dogs
