Well marked, great hike, nice environment . All the people that use the trails are very friendly. An excellent multi recreational area.

Good workout, great with dogs. The trails are intended for mountain bikers, but hikers/walkers r welcome too. Park at the Shaw Outdoor Center, check out the trail map on the north side of the center and pick a trail. I enjoy the Blue Trail the most, wider so easier to step aside for any bikers. Bring your water, you’ll need it as it’s a steep climb that switchbacks up the mountain. Many lookouts along the way and good pausing spots. Nice short local trail system.

Fun hike, was looking forward to a nice view from the top but turns out you really cant see a thing unless we missed something? Good workout nonetheless.

great little walk in the woods. it was quiet when we visited so we let the dogs run off leash.

parking is at the shaw outdoor center.

besides the main trail to the summit there are lots of side trails that are grey for running, walking, mountain biking, skiing or snowshoeing. you can't really get lost, though, just gon downhill and you'll end up at the outdoor center again.
