Very easy trail. We took all 3 kids and they loved it. Nice scenery, some wild life, and plenty of birds. It's just too bad there aren't more trails in the rocky fork region to take. I'll be going again.

I am a huge fan of Ft. Hill. Unfortunately the deer loop has been closed both times I've gone this passed year but the trail (I've forgotten the name) was a great hike regardless with awesome rock features that lead to really awesome outlooks, a lot of cool terrain and much more! This loop as a whole is pretty easy but so worth it if you get a chance to get out there.
