Took Faulkner up and Precipice down. Faulkner is well-marked, great for novices. Pretty view of the valley from the top. Lots of traffic, including some school groups. Precipice was less trafficked. A bit narrow at points (hence precipice), but not scary or needing special equipment since there is informal railing along the way. A solid, quick, and easily accessible hike.

I if you follow directions on the way back you have to go through tough trail. A lot of fun though.

This trail is very entertaining to hike. Lots of interesting spots, and great woods for photography. If I lived in the area I would definitely go again, I bet its amazing in the fall.

This is a wide smooth trail with little incline for most of it. Great trail for family even with small kids.

It's a great steady climb until the top where you have to slow down because it's steep and a bit rocky!

Nice hike up. Switchbacks on the way up until the top section where it gets a little steeper and has some rocks. Great views of the Town of Woodstock at the South Peak.

Nice easy hike. Unfortunately the upper section of the trail was closed due to construction (closed until September 30th) but saw plenty of chipmunks and a red eft newt.

Great little hike. Nice and easy on the way up and a much more interesting trip down. Not so sure I would bring small children down that way, very steep drop offs and only a steel cable to hold you back.
