Did this trail in an hour with 3 kids, and that included 20 mins spent at the fire tower at the top and 5 mins picking blackberries on the way down. Easy trail, mostly rock “stairs.”

Is the trail open for the season yet? I heard it was recently closed for mud season, but it has been very dry recently.

This trail has been closed for a ridiculous amount of time.... We used to hike it all the time!

Wonderful hike. Currently, Turnpike Rd., is closed due to damage caused by the July 1 rainstorm. The trail is officially closed.
