Great hike for the family! There is a nice parking lot and the remains of a house at the end. The path is uphill, but nevertheless it is a nice paved road. Highly recommend!

This is a great place to go for a walk and get away from the crowds! After a long drive it was a perfect hike to stretch our legs!

Lovely trail, gradual slope, mostly shaded, little to no wildlife sighting. Wide enough for two people.

We came back to try our luck again and park is open now. Very nice experience for a very small fee ($3.25).

Absolutely beautiful. My first time coming here and loved it. Nice and shaded and if you get too hot you can cool off near the entrance to the cave. Cave and visitors center are currently closed due to COVID-19. only portapottys are available.

Amazing views!

Maybe I didn’t read enough reviews but I had no idea it was up a hill. The trail was mostly gravel in woods, could be muddy after rains, partly grass and open air. Cool feature was the phone number that could be called to find out info on the history of the fort and area. Many informative signs along the way. Fairly quick 1.15 miles there & back

Good walk and saw lots of different critters. It was mainly gravel and lots of sun light on certain aspects of the trail.

Overall a very nice trail, with lots of ups and downs to keep things interesting. The view at the monument was beautiful. Granted, the weather today was perfect, and it was a Saturday, but I would describe this trail as moderately trafficked rather than light.

Partly for hiking. Nice trail, maybe half way around the lake is unpaved. Did this trail a while ago. It was a nice trail.

Stunning scenery along this trail! Some caves along the sides if you’re daring, otherwise it’s not too difficult.

This was the hardest hike I’ve probably ever done just because of those stairs, but it was so worth it. I loved seeing all the historical sites. This is definitely a trail for someone who likes history like myself. Seeing the old mines and buildings was so cool and the signs around the area helped you understand what you were seeing. The waterfall at the beginning of the trail was great too! I’ll definitely be coming back again in the future.

Great views of Pasadena, many old pictures to depict where the railways system used to be. Nice trail overall with one water stream on our way back.

This trail was fantastic! Like the other reviewers have said, make sure you take a left for the better trail. (We actually overshot it the first time going up...found the junction on our way back down...look for the rusted metal rope looking thing on the ground as an indicator to head left.) After that, the trail is much better and easier to see, thanks to the magnificent amount of cairns. Seriously I would love to send flowers to whoever set up all of those cairns and worked on this new trail - they were incredibly helpful and guided us many times. Thank you so much! This is definitely rated correctly as it is a challenging ascent, but the views at the top are worth it!!

Lots of cars in the parking area but only passed 3 groups while we hiked in the middle of the day on a Saturday. Nice and easy hike but the switchbacks coming down are sandy and easy to slip on if you don’t wear proper hiking shoes! To start, we went to the right to the proper trailhead and not up the concrete hill. Any downed trees had been moved or cut through so we had no issues passing.

We had a great hike, but it ended up being 4.5 miles and 750 feet of elevation. We saw a ton of wildlife including elk and deer. The top is a beautiful view for sure! The trail does have bible verses along part of it. Trail was in great condition.

Nice, quiet walk through the woods. Great for kids.

this area is awesome because there’s many different options for trails! unfortunately when we went the trail was flooded at the end so we couldn’t complete, otherwise a great day!

We went through the woods and went up and down hills. Otherwise the trail through grass is very flat and easy. Those information boards are educational. Don’t forget your hat on a hot sunny day.

Great trail for families! The main path is paved. Lots to see including bridges, a creek and many small waterfalls. The trail is shaded by tall trees. It is more of a walking trail which makes it easy to explore with kids.

So beautiful
