Simple, easy to hike trail that ends up at a gorgeous overlook of the Strato Bowl.

Very easy. You walk on a gravel road the entire time.

Super easy and short. The view is ok but it's a bit of a long drive for just this. Maybe stopping by on your way somewhere else would be ok but it's barely worth it to make this a hiking "destination". It is good for kids and for the historical significance of the site but I doubt I'll be back again

Great view minus the houses from the top. I biked up this trail and would definitely come back to do so again, nice wide trail the whole way up with gradual hills. I personally wouldn't waste hiking this unless I was with little ones who can't go far, or unless you're looking for a quick getaway from town.
