  • Nice easy hike up to the Eyrie house ruins with excellent panoramic views. Clean bathrooms near the start. Nice playground and field to use. Pavilion available to rent. I'm sure there's more too. Just been once.
  • It was very peaceful climbing up. There were also view points to stop and enjoy the view on the way! I also like the variety of trails around the mountain as well.
  • Beautiful view points and nice hiking trails. Can also spend time with family around the lake. Lots of space that can accommodate large crowds comfortably.
  • Perfect and endless places to hike! There is also an abandoned camp/resort that is really cool to explore!
  • Great for an easy day hike. The trials aren't hard by any stretch of the imagination and the view at the top is superb considering the area around it.
