  • Great hike! Beautiful viewpoint at the top, and up-and-down hike through rocky woods to get there. Takes about 1-1.5 hours one-way going at a good pace. Plan on taking a lot longer with children because of the rocky terrain and occasional steep inclines. Perfect hike to bring your dog! Have to be in fairly good shape just to complete the hike, and even then it's a good workout. Highly recommend!
