Very nice area, we got a bit lost. Maybe due to lack of situational awareness/ just letting the dog pull us down whatever path he wanted! We were easily able to tell which general direction we needed to head in and only added about half a mile to the overall trip. The parts where I know we were on the right trail weren't too difficult but not easy either. great for active dogs or bigger kids.
Good hike, recommend this and any of the others nearby. Rock formations were pretty cool and shade trees were available which helps in warm weather months.
Good for a quick hike close to town.
Nice hike. Lots of shade and beautiful views of the city at the top. Many boulders to climb on and take pictures. A popular hike and a great way to experience Elden without hiking to the top.
