Very easy hike, you do have an option where you want to be adventurous or just an easy walk. There is paved roads that you can take or the dirt road. Do know that the dirty road is being eaten away at some parts, so if you have hiking shoes with better grip...that will definitely help. If you have a puppy and want to take it for you to hike...this is a great place to hike with your pet. There are so many dogs everywhere.

First real mountain hike. The snow was challenging for the last mile near the top since I only had hiking boots, but I was able to take it slow and make it through. The rock scramble was intimidating since I hadn't done anything like it before, but again, taking it slow I made it to the top and it was well worth it.

Nice U of U hike for some cardio fun and nice views in the rock loungers.

Just hiked it over the weekend. One of my favorite go to trails if I need a quick short cardio. The trail was dry all the way up and even pass the lookout up to the very top. I timed myself. Without stoping and a good pace it only took me 30 min to get to the lookout point.

It was a little hard to find the trail head, there are alot of different little trails at the beginning. When u park at the end of Lakeline, go to the east side by the benches and keep heading east. You can take the steeper trail to the left hidden in the trees or you can go up to the No Trespassing sign and turn left. I got a little turned around but basically just keep heading straight for that radio/cell tower thing (which is about the 1/2 way point FYI) and you will get there. :) Hard steep hike but I made it up in 44min. going pretty slow. Have fun!
