Hiked Buzzard Trail stumbly and thought it was a nice moderately to easy hike. Probably hiked for a little over an hour. The lookout view was great.

The trail was easy to hike and wide. The intersections required paying attention to or knowing you path in advance but you could always reference the maps that were posted throughout and be fine. Pretty easy with a great view at the lookout and along the south ridge. Quiet once you are away from the road and pet friendly. Will do this one again.

You can make the hike as easy or intense as you want. The moderate trail is quite steep to go up but makes a great work out.
