Little muddy this time of year. Pretty lookout however it was cloudy today so it would be even better during the spring /summer! Quick hike & a good workout!

Gorgeous views!! Did this today 1/15 solo with my three dogs. Short hike, but it got steep quickly. No snow or ice, muddy on a few spots, but nothing too crazy.

Pretty much straight up hill, wouldn’t say it’s “easy” by any means but definitely doable. My 4 year old walked the whole thing. Pretty views! Trail was pretty muddy.

It is all uphill and definitely tiring with a little one. it is manageable with kids for sure. I'd definitely recommend bringing extra shoes for afterwards. mine got soaked. besides that the views are stunning.

The family really enjoyed this hike. In January this hike seems more moderate than easy. The walk up and down includes some steps that little legs will struggle with, meaning both the 5 year old and the Corgi. Several parts of the trail have water running down it. Not for a beginner hiker unless they are in relatively good shape.

Quick short hike that's fun to do. Elevation does gain a bit. Very nice scenery when hiking up to the lookout. I loved the views of the mountains from the top. You can even bring a sleeping back to cuddle up in before sunrise and watch the mountains. Snowy parts everywhere. Great for families, friends, and pets.

Short, but steep on the way up. It was raining and had very limited visibility while I was there. But it was a pretty trail and when the fog cleared for a minute the mountain views were pretty.

Based on the Rocks, mud, steepness i would almost say moderate more than easy...for kids...I basically carried my daughter up and Down. Overall the views at the top and throughout were awesome and totally worth it! Believe we got up in about 45 minutes(with little one) and half that going.m down.

Amazing short and steep hike. The lookout can be rented out for $75 a night. It's really cool.

Beautiful, but is steep. Probably should not be listed as Easy. Views from the top of Mt. Baring and Mt. Index are great!

Beautiful area, but much harder than expected. I have heart trouble and the elevation was too much for me.

Pretty good pitch the whole way but worth it.

Nice hike with a beautiful view at the top. Even though this trail is rated easy, it was a steady incline throughout. At the very top, there is a wooden lookout that has about 6 flights of stairs where you can get great a great view
