A very nice walk, a bit of an incline and steps throughout so it’s not suitable for wheelchair access. A great view from the top. A good picnic place.

Plenty of places for parking, great walk, bit off a push to get to the top up the stairs but not too strenuous otherwise. Gorgeous views.

Took the grandchildren who love to climb up to the pike. We parked at the top barn and walked up past the pigeon tower. They absolutely love it.
