I consider myself an urban hiker. I do many 5-6 mile hikes along our waterfronts and have done Cowles Mtn in the past, but this was my first trip to Iron Mountain. I went with my roommate and her two dogs so we didn't expect to go all the way, but the trail is easy to travel and the scenery is spectacular. It was a very windy day so I think that enhanced the views at the top. I found I preferred the eastern less populated view than the western view even though I love the ocean. I will definitely go again and take more water and a heartier snack for the rest at the peak. It was awesome to see families out hiking this together.
