This is a decent moderate trail for hiking. But beware, while there is a firetower at the top, there's a locked gate around, so you can't climb up it. And there are ZERO views along the way.

Very very rocky. Get for hiking but you would need to be an expert in order to mountain bike this trail Goes between blue and yellow trails. You need to download map or you will get lost. We followed the map exactly and there was no fire tower to be had.

Nice hike, we had great weather. It's sad that the fire tower was not open. I'm sure there would have been some nice views.

This was the green blazed trail and appeared to be recently re-marked so it was easy to follow. You do have to trust yourself when crossing the roadways but there are enough marks to find your way. Overall the hike is not overly difficult but there are not many views other than around Hopewell Lake. I went mid-week and it is extremely peaceful. So if you want a moderate hike that takes 2-3 hours depending on how often you stop this is perfect.
