Easy hike up the mountain on a leisurely winding trail. Can be difficult at the end (there is a wire handrail to help guide in the final stretch) but overall a simple walk. We saw many families with young children as well as older couples...More

We hiked up using the Faulkner Trail, and it did not disappoint. Relatively easy hike/ascent with beautiful view of the town and surrounding countryside on a clear day. Go to the pond at the top, then descend via the carriage trails. Very manageable. Carriage trails...More

It is an easy hike from the parking lot off Prosper Road. Not too much elevation and what there is is gradual. The view is worth it!
