Great for dogs, lots of little areas to stop and rest. Good shaded areas. We took blue loop which was steep but beautiful.

Loved this hike and will definitely do it again. Only negative is the limited parking, we had to drive farther down the parkway to find a place to park.

Great day hike! There aren't any extraordinary views like some of the other trails in the area, however it is still beautiful wilderness. The interpretive sign describing the Lodge is faded and needs replacement.

slightly strenuous start, interesting views of the road and homeplace. parking can be a bit challenging. short distance but worth taking the trekking poles.

Great well kept trail. Be sure once you hit the house remains you either follow the blue up a steep hill or take the white blazes to the right and meet up with the blue blazes further down the trail for a less strenuous climb. Be sure to turn left at the blue blazes if you take this route to come back down, otherwise you'll continue on the mtn to sea trail.

I think moderate is right on.
