Amazing view at the top. Some steep sections. If it has been raining a lot recently would recommend red trail over yellow trail or you may do some slipping and sliding.

Confusing trail markers but has a nice lookout spot over the reservoir

Super pretty and such an easy trail! One of our favorites

Not too shabby for an up and down in an hour or less. Old ski trail quite fascinating

A decent hike, but note worth the time given the variety of other trails in the area.

Pros: short hike for decent views, cool old ski area equipment, and ability to see the old trails. Also very few people so nice solitude.
Cons: wandering dogs can be dangerous (was attacked on more than one occasion) and the trails are not well maintained. Always bring mace.

This is a very well maintained trail. It passes through towns where you can take a break and even eat if you'd like BUT it is all paved road which i dont like as i have a mountain bike. This is great for road bikes. For walking and mountain biking, it just give you the all-natural outdoorsy feeling.
Good trail if you are a road biker.

Fairly short and easy hike. Great for kids. You have to kind of wander off the trail to see the views, but it was pretty. Would do it again.

This right here runs along some of the finest cliff jumping in the area. Be careful though over the past few years there have been many mishaps with inexperienced jumpers resulting in many injuries making this a hot zone to throw out tickets for trespassing in the public water supply. do not plan on jumping here if you arent ready to run or swim away in order to dodge a ticket.
great hiking though also :)

If you are starting from the parking lot, keep going up and to the left for the best views

It was a cooler day and slightly muddy from melting snow. The parking lot is easy to find, a few hundred feet off the road , tucked behind a few houses.

The hike is easy and the path is pretty well maintained. There are stone steps when it becomes steeper. There wasn't much of a view even with bare trees, but it was still neat to check out the abandoned ski equipment.
