Great hike with decent incline. Beware of the afternoon mud as the snow is melting! I had good hiking shoes but my friends sneakers were filled with mud. Very fun though!

This is a nice hike of you don't have a lot of time to drive into the mountains. It took about two hours round trip. We started at 7:30am on a Sunday and there was one car in the lot- by 9:30 there were 15-20, mostly cyclists and runners. Nice scenery at the top, nothing spectacular as far as a view or challenge.

Not an escape from civilization, for sure. Pretty views west once past Windy Saddle. Good workout.

This is a 5 mi trail right off of Hwy 6. It's 2.5 mi up Lookout Mt and while all of the reviews say it is steep and difficult, I actually found it fairly easy and a very pleasant hike with excellent views at the top. It took me just under an hour to get to the top, at a pretty easy pace and then 30 mins to get down. Great fun hike!

Lots of variety and lovely views. Love this hike with the pup! We often see deer in the evenings. There are rattle snakes and ticks, so keep an eye out and wear repellent - for the ticks...sadly, no reliable snake repellent available ;)!
