  • We hiked this one day and what a riot we had. The views are amazing and the hike is quite easy in comparison to many. Definitely give it a try!!  more »
  • This place features endless amounts of stunning beauty! The key word here is "ridge trail" so you know there's going to be some uphill climbing. Not recommended for anyone who is mobility challenged. ...  more »
  • This mountain appears to pull in its own weather, judging by the clouds that usually surround it. It's a strenuous hike staright up to the summit and straight down to the parking lot. The path is very...  more »

  • This trail has amazing views over the valley, you get to see the verdant slopes of the mountain and the steam, plus the bay in the horizon. It's not too long at 5 miles (out and back), but some of the sections are quite steep, so take your time going up and enjoy the views along the way. Parking is limited and people tend to start early (open time is 7), so plan on arriving before 8 or you may need to park at the overflow parking lot nearly an extra mile down from the main parking lot.
  • This trail is amazing. Go in the morning and keep looking back. The views are fabulous. When you get to the top you feel great that you accomplished it. 3 miles one way. Starts at 1,000 feet and ends at 2,563 feet.
  • Great hike. Spectacular views. Not difficult, though there are some spots that might give an inexperienced hiker pause (narrow trail, long fall). There is a single picnic table at the end of the trail (about 2.25 mi). Beautiful plants and birds...and a mongoose looking for dropped crumbs at the end.
  • This trail ascends varying terrain and provides excellent views. We did arrive after the clouds descended on the ridges, but still a lovely hike. Bring water and snacks because its a sustained uphill trail.
  • Great trail, but really needs more work from the state. I don't like having loads of signs or asphalt dropped everywhere, but a bit of effort putting in more steps and stepping stones through the mud would go a really long way. If you're climbing on a cloudy day, don't go into the clouds unless you're desperate to reach the top - there's no views from the clouds!
