This is a fairly new trail that is well maintained. The views from the tower are awesome. The trail traffic is heavy on weekends.

Fantastic hike. I logged a little over 11 miles up and back and it took close to 5 hours. I went off the beaten trail a lot and looked at the wild orchids and many different Trillium species. If you really like wildflowers, this hike is for you!

Great Trail well Maintained. Few areas had a good workout. If go up to top make sure to have layers. Went from 62 to 43 when I went on 2/17/17.

difficulty rating should be easy, 1000ft-ish gain over 4 miles of a well maintained trail. Great for trail running or easy weekend afternoon hike.

The only "hard"part of this trail is the distance. The elevation was great and the path was an easy travel. great hike!
