Did this hike with my 12 year old son and his friend. We all had a great time, and the views were great. We went up the red trail, and returned on the white trail. The red trail took about 25 min to get to the top. The fire tower at the top was great to climb and see the views. There is also fresh water at the top from a hand pumped well, with nice and cold water. The road to the hike, Belknap Mtn road, was dirt, and a bit rutty for the last few miles, with switch backs. However going slow it was fine. I let the boys mountain bike down this part following the hike, while I followed in the truck. They had a blast. I would recommend the white trail for a family hike, as it is less steep, but a bit longer. The views are better as well.
