This is the very first hike I ever did and years later I wanted to return to see how we both held up ;) The hike is still as wonderful as I remember! And reminded me where my love of hiking began...
We took the long trail up and the short trail down. The long trail is a great combination of everything a good hike would encompass, starts as a nice woodsy walk which then slowly develops to more challenging, steep and diverse terrain until the last part when you are doing some rock scrambling to reach the summit.
Like so many others have said the view from the top is fantastic, pack a lunch so you can enjoy and fuel up for the trip down. We took the short trip down which is a careful hike/climb down steep rocks/ boulders and some woodsy walking. It is a nice end to the overall experience.
Please plan on taking your time and enjoying both trails, no need to run up and down this pretty little mountain. Children over 7 and parents will love this hike, children especially the climbing bits where parents will have to keep up!
One thing- we saw a young girl coming down barefoot with flip flops in hand, her expression was not one of joy for sure- though it is listed in some books as an "easy" hike-it is definitely more "moderate"- good sneakers or hiking footwear is needed and the temperatures can fluctuate during the hike, so dress accordingly.
