Beautiful and worth it view at the top. Very nice trail. Would recommend

Wouldn't call it difficult more like strenuous

Relatively easy hike. Pretty flat as well

Tons of trails, lots of wildlife. Fun for everyone! You'll spend plenty of time exploring all the trails in this park. Walking, biking, hiking, you'll have fun

Thos place was beautiful- foliage is like a rain forest. was easy for kids. we went in May and it wasnt so stroller/wagon friendly at the time, but still doable. The hand tram was super cool.

Amazing views and a heart pumping hike. I made the mistake of not bringing water... do not make that mistake!!! Also another helpful tip, wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty, as there is a lot of climbing once you get closer to the top. This was my first mountain I climbed and it was definitely not easy, but do-able for most people. Also wear good shoes, because there is a lot of gravel and if you don't have shoes with grip, you will fall. Best in the summer time, for sure. Happy trails! :)

I love this trail!! Once you reach the end of the Football Field, you'll find Black Lake sitting right underneath O'Malley Peak.

Amazing hike. Top was a lot of rock climbing but definitely worth the view!
