    This is a great, well maintained trail with a steady ascent and some switchbacks. Dog-friendly! The views are lovely.

    This trail has about 900' of elevation gain to a very nice observation platform with a great view of the valley below.

    Great day hike. Easy enough for the family. Great views with a small observation deck at the top.

    Great trail!! Significant effort to get to the top, but well worth it! A beautiful view all over the valley and surrounding mountains. Camp at the Forest Service campground - Seneca Shadows and walk to the trail as well as downtown Seneca Rocks and a great swimming hole. This place has it all!! Best of all, no cell service anywhere!

    I enjoyed this trail very much with all of its features it had to offer, for four nights five days by myself. I would defintely recommend it to anyone who is traveling near the area of Seneca Creek. I plan to return to Seneca Creek Backcountry as soon as I can to explore more of the other trails I was not able to hike during my trip.

    Tough for an old guy like me on the way up but the way down was great! My dog and I loved it.
