Iron hill trail

Very easy, entirely flat trail. It is historical, so take one of the guide maps. I didn't, and was very confused. I'd recommend this trail for running, but not for hiking.

Good day hike. Challenging enough to be entertaining but not impossible. At one point we lost the blazes until we looked UP. Only two other parties on the trail that day but it runs up behind a neighborhood near the start. Would've been 5 stars if it was more remote.

This is a great, great hike! It's lovely because there are several different ways to hike it, but the view from the top makes it totally gorgeous. You can see the lake, and miles of suburban sprawl. The trail is relatively quiet, but there's sure to be someone hanging out at the top, taking in the view. Be prepared for a steep climb to get up there, but I have seen some children make it up, so don't feel too intimidated. :) Bring water! There are rock faces on the ascent that are worth stopping for as well.

Pretty good trail for starters. Decent scenery early in the morning. Ups and downs make it a decent workout at full speed. Overall, a pretty good trail. Easy+ i would say.

This trail is average as far as scenery and challenge are concerned. A very quick 5.7 miles. It's rather hilly so there is a bit of a workout to it, but the decline makes it easy to catch your breath and keep on going. There's not a lot that's terribly special about this trail, but I enjoyed it all the same. Not a whole lot to see aside from other people and trees.
