I would rate this more moderate than easy. Toll gate has a steady incline for at least a mile and it's very rocky. It's a very nice hike.

After breaking away from the other trail heads his hike is STEEP. Not the easy hike I was looking for. After gaining the altitude at the beginning the hike becomes easy but that first part was a steady climb. On the way back I took the West Bluff Trail which gave the best views off the hill.

Starting at the Land Trust Parking lot yields many variations of trails. There are many unmarked trails on the map and all are very easy. This is the most direct route to the north side overlook of Monte Sano State Park if starting at the the Land Trust parking lot.

5 stars for what it is; a nice meandering trail that is not overly technical.

This trail is a good one that I do on a regular basis. There are several good lookouts, especially near the power line. Good trees for eno hammocks and I see people relaxing up there pretty frequently. My dog likes this trail a lot too.

The lake is very nice but the trail is boring and there were lots of noisy, screaming children around. There's a nice covered bridge though. The best thing I got on this trail was instagram photos.

This was a great trail to run. The rocks weren't that bad. Nice, fast route!

Easy 30-45 min walk out. You can turn around and go back before it drops down if that is a concern. Very wooded - not heavily travelled since the Natural Wells trail had a land slide.
