We did this hike for the first time today and we were amazed. The view at the top was breath taking! It was worth all the effort it took to get there. Definitely a moderate hike. My 6 & 9 year old had a blast....More

The mountain is not difficult to find and there is a little parking area with an outhouse. The hike took us over an hour, but we had a 10 year old that needed some convincing that she could make it to the top! It is...More

This was a terrific and fun hike. It is listed as 1.3 miles and that sounds rather short. It starts it as an easy walk through the woods but gets a little more tricky towards the top so bring appropriate shoes. Once at the top...More

We looked this hike up and found it was 1.3 miles...not too bad. Our ages were 20 months and several other children with 67 being the oldest. It was tough.

This is a perfect hike if you're looking for a shorter moderate hike. It's about 2 hours round trip with some very steep parts. We hiked the day after a large rainstorm and it was incredibly muddy and slippery in many areas. Good sneakers/hiking shoes...More

This is a good choice for a family hike because although it's uphill and there are some rocks to scramble over, young children can certainly do it. My kids both first did this hike around age 4 or 5. The view is terrific if you're...More

Love this hike! In some publications, it is listed as an easier family hike, but be forewarned, it is a little longer than advertised and does contain some longer steep segments later in the hike. (It's more moderate than "easy.") The panoramic views from the...More

We've been going every summer since 2003. This hike is moderate and can be a morning or afternoon activity; take water. Some sections you need to be more aware of your footing but it's still a great family hike (with older kids 12+). Going up...More
