Lone Oak to Tip Top Trail

First mile is the most difficult followed by an
easy .5 mile then another steep incline. Coming down from Tip Top is also a bit of a challenge if you are out of shape like me. Found 3 ticks so watch out for that, a few mosquitos, and beautiful butterflies. I'm glad I went and I recommend it.

Pretty cool little hike. A bit steep but worth it. Going back down was super quick. I recorded a bit over 2 miles hiking to the second picnic area, so 4+ miles in and out. At the second picnic area another trail continues off of it so potentially you could do more adventuring if you wanted. Definitely will be back.

The hike itself is nice. There are decent views throughout the hike, but there is no opening just for the view once you've reached the tops. It's obscured by trees. But overall, we enjoyed our hike!

Came back the second day and did a 6.3 mile bike ride. Getting further along the trail opened up some very beautiful views along the way. Old railway station locations act as resting point along the trail. Very nice.

Did a 4 mile walk along the trail but I wanted to see more. Trail is old train bed so it is a good walking surface. Planning to come back and go further.

It was very hot when we did the full loop in early August, which probably made the moderate hike seem more difficult that in it was. Much of the trail is underwhelming due to an apparent fire in recent years, but there are some quite beautiful spots as well. The view from the tip top trail were a little underwhelming compared to the views from White Rock, which are spectacular.

Was great trail, but it's sad that the smokers think it's ok to throw their cigarette butts on ground!!!!
Didn't this place catch fire? 8-10 yr ago?
Other than that great trail!!
