Lame trail - 500 feet elevation gain, same path that heads up to Poo Poo and then there are many different break off paths, you can easily get on a different path if not careful.

Flat, narrow, well groomed but surrounded by power-lines and a gun range.

Not completely horrible, but so many better options within a 10-minute drive. Highlights include a high school, power lines, a power relay station, glimpses of an ugly lake, a burned out bus, and a shooting range! Nature at its best? I think not. Not even a good work out as all the elevation gain is achieved in one short spurt.

We had a great time on this trail, cleared paths and the kids enjoyed it. Would love to go back and do the crossing “adventure” and “wetlands” trails too to make a little longer. Loved seeing the people “flying” from poo poo point nearby and appreciated much less foot traffic than poo poo point on a beautiful sunny Saturday!

Well, this trail is near a rifle range. LOL, I'm a veteran with PTSD sooooo no. if you can handle the gun fire then I'm sure it would be pretty.

5/28/2017 (Sunday) -- A sunny morning of the Memorial weekend, cool in the woods. Very pleasant trail condition, moderate to light traffic on this easy but interesting loop.

5/20/2017 (Saturday) -- A warm sunny weekend afternoon's easy hiking as a group, start from the High School up to the Traditional Plateau via Exit-18 trail, then moving into the woods by "Around Lake" and "Bus" trails, down by the "High School" trail (most people take this trail to Poo Poo Point). We saw nearly a dozen parachutes hovering above the mountain. Trails are in good condition with moderate traffic. An easy and pleasant 2-hour, 4-mile loop.
