Awesome short hike. Took the stairs up and the hard way down. Beautiful hike and scenery. Phenomenal lookout point over the lake. Took about 40 minutes.

The wife and I hiked the “difficult” trail and had no problems. Views are amazing, especially during peak fall colors. Loved it and will be back in Spring!

This hike was a short one in comparison to the beauty of the payoff! Not only beautiful surrounding of woods and then distant views but wildlife. Pliated woodpeckers, frogs, squirrels. Totally worth the hike!

One of the great sites in Marquette Michigan, easy to climb and path well taken care of. Once at the top the scenery is breath taking, bring a camera as you will want the memories

Gorgeous scenery, beautiful views of Lake Superior & Marquette. Hike is a little difficult for someone like me in their 70's with a knee problem, but well worth the effort

I couldn't thing of a better option to sailing when 36degrees outside. I have been hiking this oversized hill for over 45 years. Sometimes it changes, but the view at the top is always good.

My husband and I climbed to the top of this small mountain. After reading reviews of what others said, we took the short path. Yes there were a lot of stairs but at least we weren't tripping over rocks and roots. The views from the...More

Well worth the effort of the reasonably gentle walk to the top and we’re hardly in the first flush of youth ! Amazing views or this wonderful area if you pick a clear day.....

After conferring with my wife it was probably a 30 minute climb. We did stop a couple times on the way up for sake of the view and to catch our breath. The closer we got to the top we did slow a bit - our 14 year old, 4... More

Depends on the kind of pet doesn't it? If it's a dog, just keep it on a leash and all is well.
