One of my favorites :) Hiking up to Little Green Mountain isn't always easy but SO worth it!

The trail is tough and steep in parts, but the view is well worth the effort. Even then the climb isn't terribly challenging for people with moderate experience.

I went when it had been raining and it does get slippery and muddy in parts after rain but it is very calm and secluded and a nice run

One word, Buttaful! ( :

Easy access, easy walk, easy on the eyes. Crowded.

great for bikes, quite boring and crowded

Super fun and a great outlook at the top! More challenging, but a great hike none the less.

Great loop as I go here to run a lot. Would not consider it a hike though. It is more of a sidewalk/walkway around the lake. Usually there are lots of people doing varied activities.

Gorgeous waterfall but very crowded trail. But they have a lot of plant identification signs which were interesting to read
