Pretty easy trail with some nice scenery. Not clearly marked, but easy enough to navigate.

The trail markings are hard to find at times. I got lost a few times and had to retrace my steps or make my own trail. Overall relatively easy trail to hike.

I guess my rating should be higher because my only real complaint was the lack of markers. I mean listening to the cars in the woods wasn't ideal either, but it's in the middle of Cranston so what do you expect! I just blazed my own trail. You can't get lost so go for it and honestly it's nice to have a place so close to home that we can use as a quick fix. Oh. I did run into a guy on an ATV so keep an ear out for that as well.

Not well marked at all but we found our way with a little help. Beautiful at the top! A bit steep but to be expected if you want a view!

Good short 2.5mile hike with a steep elevation. Trails are marked periodically with red/orange markings. Some areas your walking they wildflowers, wooded trees or rocky trails. In early spring there is usually a stream running. By summertime it’s dried up
