It was a nice long paved road. Very quiet and easy. We completed it in about 2 and a half hours out and back. There are some areas with debris in the road but you can easily get around it.

Good challenging incline, great views, and fun to run down. One big section is still covered in debris but you can easily get around it whether running or biking.

I wouldn't call this a hike per se, since it's well paved and very comfortable, but it is a great day walk and training trail! Very good for families with strollers!

The lookout is beautiful however the pavement was tiring on our joints. Will be biking this one next time.

This is a paved trail, and though it's a decent climb (one way) if you do the whole thing- it's still pretty easy. It's not too busy, but there are some great views. The history is pretty interesting as well.
