Nice hike for about 2 hours. From the ridge you have a nice overlook. But take care, you might meet a moose on your way.

This is not a particularly challenging walk as the trail is well marked, paved at the beginning and then a bit of climbing toward the end. The reward at the end is having great views across the park.

Nice walk in the woods for a great view of the town below and the entrance to the park. All uphill (then down) so not for the sedentary.

We hiked this trail and the views the entire time were wonderful. Make sure to bring water and snacks- be prepared in general. It took us probably 2.5 hours to do the whole trail and we stopped at the top to eat and take pictures....More

Challenging hike on well groomed trail to an amazing overlook. Definitely worth the effort. Beautiful 360 degree view of mountains and valleys.
