Loved the hike. We went at the end of December. It was a moderately cold and clear of snow but there was some icy areas. We were a group of 9 people ranging in age from 3 to 55. Plus a dog:) The 3 year old did some walking and climbing but had to be carried almost the whole time so I would not recommend bringing kids younger than 4-5! We had lots of fun and the view from the top is totally worth it.

great hike best to go early to park at trail head before lot fills up. December 54 degrees! We took the blue trail up Boulder trail appropriately named some steep and rock scrambling sections but more scenic. Took the yellow trail down brook trail few wet and muddy sections. 1 hour up 1 hour down yellow easier but longer. All and all great day many people, dogs, children just starting up.
