  • Good challenge, well traveled, well marked. Lots of switchbacks but relatively accessible for the novice to the experienced hiker.  more »
  • This is a scenic mostly-up-out and mostly-down-back hike of 6+ miles. It's a nice distance and a good workout for those of us in moderate shape.  more »

  • Nice, moderate hiking trail. Great views and varied trail experience. Trail has multiple elevation changes and could possibly be challenging for the inexperienced, but most can make it to the top if you have time. Good amount of parking but will fill up quick on busy days and you need a forestry pass ($5 from local bike shop).
  • Very nice and peaceful in the spring, the kids got to run around and let off some steam, we also found some cool pine cones.... We went on a Monday so it was not busy at all... Very beautiful, a must-see, make sure you stop by a local grocery store and get a day pass to put on your vehicle when you park.
