Beautiful and excellent run. It is not 5.3mi but 6.338mi for the full round circuit. Follow the blue Marks throughout the way and you will be in for a treat with stunning vistas and superb running terrain.

Great family hike. 4, 5 and 7 year old. 3.4 miles with dog. Right after snow melt and rain, falls were flowing! Will go again.

While i hike a portion of this trail regularly locals have informed me that hunters cameras in the last 6 weeks have caught images of a Mountain Lion and have told me to excercise extreme caution while in the area and to not get on the trail after sunset.

This is my favorite hike!!!

Nice hike with kids. My 4, 5 and 7 year old had no problem. Be careful near cliffs, also does have a decent incline. Great for dogs too. Pretty solid for families. Little parking.

Nice hike with family. Very busy, which is a pro and a con. Great for dogs as there were a bunch of dogs on this trail. Nice views from the tower.

Great snowy hike today. We parked in the commuter lot, crossed the street and walked up a side street to find the trail head. It was easy to find and everything was very clearly marked. We will definitely go again.

Great winter hike - loop trail is strenuous enough for a work out and quick enough (90-120 min) to squeeze into a busy day. Nice views of the surrounding hills and a few streams and small waterfalls. Trail is well marked and dovetails with the AT for ~0.5 mile.

Magical especially after a snowfall...

Pretty hike, took me about 50 mins front to back including ~5-10 mins at the top. Love the tower! Very cool.

Nice little walk around the pond. Not too strenuous.

Solid hike, be ready to deal with some rocks if you are going in the winter. Trail relatively well kept and well blazed.

it wasn't so hard, and a lot of fun. the view was nice! definitely would do it again

I hiked here today and it was great! It had snowed last night, so the trail was coated, but it was only moderately slippery in a few spots. The views on this trail are incredible - there are a bunch of overlooks! Definitely recommend this hike.

Technical, flow, and some fun features to play on.
This place has it all!

It was amazing. I only walked about 2 miles in but I intend on going back next weekend for the whole round trip. I’m looking forward to this hike. It is flat or downhill in most places so far, so deeming it Easy was definitely appropriate. Looking forward to doing it this weekend!!!

Nice easy walk especially if you’re bring older dogs that may fatigue quickly.

First time here - we (my puppy and I) loved it!

This trail is outstanding. It's relatively easy with some actual hiking involved as well as some walking on an old road. The overlook is just ok. Moderately traveled. We loved it! We'll be back for some trail running! (Leave the old dog at home, maybe my husband too)
