I went biking here today and it was hilly in some parts but for experienced riders it should be fine. We also found several geocaches. Most were relatively easy to find with the app.

A not very tall mountain but excellent for hiking with friends and family. Rugged trails, so wear proper shoes. Gets cold in the fall, so wear proper clothes.

Some parts are quite uphill, but not too hard. Very woodsy. Fun huge rock area on which to picnic. Ok to bring your dog if he/she likes hiking.
