A beautiful quick hike!

on South Ridge Trail

Sweet little State Park. For the South Ridge Trail, follow signs to the South Loop and South Meadow. Go left at the top instead of following signs to the South Ridge. It was noisy after about 7:30 with nearby farm equipment. Go before 7 for a more peaceful hike. The first mile is uphill. After that, it's easy. You'll hike through the woods and around a meadow. At the top, there are peekaboo territorial views.

Great views from the parking lot before the hike. I wouldn't rate this as a hard hike, it's short and not all that steep. Many other trails to explore in addition to the main summit trail.

Gorgeous day. Lots of wildflowers. Such fun!

Nice little hike if you're in the area! I drove from Salem and thought it was a little far for a short 2 miles. But it feels very secluded - didn't come across one other person on the trail which is rare!
