Pretty easy hike. Some elevation gain in the beginning depending where you access, but nothing outlandish. Some snowmelt created some small "creeks" to cross on the ascent but there was enough rock and such to step on across them. Lovely scenery and you can go...More

Nice area to bike close to the city center. Finished this on a loop trail. The whole area is so beautiful, I'm sure any trail will make you smile. Lots of families on this one.

We went the end of Sept and the leaves were changing so was beautiful, but this would be a great drive any time of the year as the mountain views along this drive are spectacular!

Love this trail! You can run it as and out and back, or out and half back to town, or take your flat lander friends on just the upper out part and stash a shuttle at Skyland. Explore around the boulders and figure out how...More
