Great hike for kids, lots of little ups and downs, short bridges and boardwalks. Shocking number of dog poop bags along the trail. Busy for a late afternoon buts it’s 45 degrees in Dec.

Really nice trail through the woods. Some semi-steep inclines up and down throughout, but mixed enough for it to still be relaxing. Like others said, many roots. Apparently it is used as a snowmobile trail in the winter! The overlook has a little bench and a beautiful view of the lake and mountains.bring your dog, but be sure to pick up after it. There was a lot not cleaned up while I was there.

Short, not too much elevation gain, great view - what’s not to like? The problem is that the trail is roots, roots an more roots. Likely not a big deal for most hikers, but for some older folks and/or anyone with a foot drop problem this is a major issue.

Great view from the overlook! Lots of shade on the trails and not a lengthy hike by any means. Easy to follow trail signs and a little muddy in some spots.

Great quick and easy hike through a beautiful and varied forest to the overlook. Not too crowded even on a beautiful Sunday.

It was muddy but pretty decent. I am glad I took the opportunity to check it out. I wish it had a map of the view like Mt Philo.

Great Trail — super muddy. Loved the map at the beginning of the trial with little history included. A fun little adventure for our family!
