Quick, easy to get to, and slightly cardio, this civilized hike is popular year-round among canines and humans. Great boulders adorn this almost-city park where wildlife such as the pileated woodpecker can be seen. Even in winter, families and a lot of dogs take this short but mighty hike to an accessible summit. A perfect after-work exercise, this is a “no-excuses” hike.
