A great trail with a gradual ascent. The view from the summit is totally worth it. Can be a good evening/after work hike

Solid mountain biking trail. People should expect bikers..this trail literally goes right into a hiker only trail. Instead of down-voting a trail because of the inevitable, maybe do some research if you hate bikers that much.

I'm not sure I did the whole hike because it didn't seem like seven miles. the part I did was a challenge yet beautiful. I went at the right time since there were not a ton of bikers. the parking lot part way up look out mountain was very small and I was lucky to find a spot.

Great hike, a little crowded. Beautiful scenery and wild flowers are blooming.

Awesome trail. But you have to earn your turns. I rode all the way up from chimney gulch trail to look out mountain trail and back down. The climb up was fairly step with a couple of sections where I had to walk my bike. I would definitely do this trail again. I didn't encounter too much traffic on a Saturday but the weather did look pretty threatening so that could have been why.
