Duration: 30-45 minutes
Elevation Gain: 195 ft. (59 m)

Activity involves some physical effort but with relative comfort. This applies to short walks on partially paved paths, or well-maintained trails with slight to moderate incline.
We placed some basic way-finding signs therefore you should have no problem finding your way. If you take a left at the first "Y" you will access another trail that goes around the lake, but this trail has no signage and some sections are in poor condition.
The lookout area at the top of the trail is quite flat and has ruins of a strategic point possibly used for security by the United States Army. It is a very nice place to share a picnic, watch the sunset and take kids on their first hike!
Dry Season (Jan-March): Very enjoyable
Rainy Season (April – Dec): Very enjoyable, just watch out for afternoon rains
