two trails one goes to a sunrise point snd one goes to a sunset vista, both are worth seeing at any time of day. came across a mama black bear and 2 cubs, they were about 50 ft from everyone way too close for comfort. keep a sharp eye!

Great hike that won't totally kick your butt! Good workout climbing up on a gravel road and nice views on the top. We park in town to get a little extra walking in. A good beginner hike!

Very easy. You walk on a dirt road. Cars can drive on the trail as well. Other than that, it's a great place to go day or night

Pretty scenery and view of Highlands. Got there a bit early for sunset. Will return for photos.
