    Amazing place to hike. You can choose three different trails to hike. The Mt major trail (hard) Brook Trail (Medium) Boulder Loop Trail (easy). btw,the view at the top was beautiful. When I was like 6 or 7 I went here and I went on the brook trail. I recommend this place very much just make sure to watch for ticks and out the bug spray on before you go hiking

    Beautiful bike and every more beautiful views! Little tough if you're not in great shape but there are easier trails for those who need it!

    Short and simple mountain for those that want to get into hiking this should be your first location to get a feel for how difficult it can be
