We live right near this park, so we absolutely love the proximity to home, as well as the view from the top. The first part of the hike is very easy, with wide easily marked trails. It is appropriate for any fitness level. About halfway...More

Steep enough to be a challenge: go faster if you're uber fit. Short enough not to tire you out too much to enjoy the view. Stay a while, let the dog play, have a picnic. It is a spectacular and vast view. I usually combine...More

I go up there several times a year, and it's great to get a 360 degree view of the Highlands and beyond. (By the way, Trip Advisor's requirement that I give my visit a SINGLE date is plain stupid. I hike some places in the...More
