Fun hike! Moderate climb due in part to one ascent where you need to climb a steep slick rock to continue to the top. Saw hikers of all ages and activity level and everyone seemed to be enjoying the hike and views. Pretty quick up and down

Nice hike there are parts you will have to climb up with yours hands. Not hard to do. Any one can do it.

Challenging but beautiful. Well worth it.

The trail is well-traveled, well-marked with white paint markings and trail markers. Some parts of the trail are relatively flat while one or two parts involve a little scrambling to get up the rock. Beautiful views at the top and pretty much all the way up! Would not want to do this hike if it has recently rained, as I imagine it would be far too slippery.

Quick trail. Steep at parts, but there is plenty of footing for a quick journey. The views are excellent, but honestly, the hike itself is the best part.
