This is a very easy hike in Roxborough. Some old buildings from the turn of the century (1900) can be seen and one is a house that is still maintained by the park. You can watch for rattlesnakes, but I've never seen one. Deer are more common.

The hike to Lyons Overlook is a little more moderate, but worth the trek for the view. If you have an interest in letterboxing, there is a letterbox up near the overlook, and another off the main trail.
