Pretty with low to moderate foot traffic. Trail section we were on was sloped so a bit hard to walk on.

Pretty rainy morning made it muddy in spots but still very doable. I look forward to doing this hike in the spring and summer.

Great trail for a short walk, dog friendly. Probably get very cold in this part of the town during winter, roads may be icy.

A pretty hike when you want something fairly quick. The hike up to Council Crest Park is easy to moderate. Mostly uphill the entire way to the park, but only at a 10-30% incline, with several areas where it's pretty flat. Lots of shade from the trees. The view from the park is gorgeous on a clear day. Pack a lunch and enjoy the view before heading back down.
