This was my first hike in like a year and needless to say there were several times my dog and I had to stop and catch our breath. It was a good workout and had some great views. I went off trail and found a weird man dug cave. I was tempted to explore but I realized that was dumb and moved on. There was another one near the summit that looked more like a coyote den. I'm still curious about what the other one was.
I didn't make it the full five miles because I thought the trail was done once I hit the first peak. I found out I was wrong from another hiker on my way back down.
Overall, I hike 2.2 miles. 1 mile up hill, another mile back down.
Great 360 degree views. clear day and could see forever. Challenge to get to the top.
The trail itself is not wonderfully interesting, but as an afternoon's exercise, I would recommend it. The views from the top are great and up there it is typically cool and breezy.
