UpsideVaried landscape from wetland, coniferous forest, deciduous forest, to rock barrens. Excellent for wildflower when seasonal. DownsideSmall parking area that can get congested. CommentHiked the trail to the lookout in early May (2016) to photograph spring wildflowers. Easy to what some call moderate hiking. Trails are well marked and present few challenges for experienced hikers. Enjoyable.
