  • Pretty easy hike, even with kids. The views from the top are AMAZING and well worth it. Definitely use some bug spray.
  • Pretty easy, family friendly hike of less than 2 miles from the Black Cap trailhead. Great views a few hundred feet before the summit. If you hike the loop I suggest the short (and steeper) way up and longer way down. Trail is in good shape but had loose dirt on a dry July day so can be a little slippery if you go down the steeper way.
  • Awesome!!! Hike is well worth it for the stunning views.
  • Rugged hike that's worth the effort
  • Short (took me about 30 minutes one way), fairly easy, steep hike. The trail was in good condition (October), with easily seen markings and trail signs. There are the usual rocks and roots and the top is all rock which some might find tricky with younger kids but 6/7 and older would be perfect for this trail. The views at the top are beautiful!
