My first hike of 2017. Seriously underestimated this hike and carried am overweight pack just for some added difficulty. Can barely move my legs a day later. Gorgeous views and strenuous uphill climbing make this a real worthwhile challenge.

One of the best, Amazing views lots of local vegetation, hard for beginners..

View from the top is totally worth the effort to get there. Very difficult

Ascending is difficult but the views make it completely worth it. Descending is much more difficult. Don't attempt unless you have decent hiking shoes/boots. The rocks are very slick going down. Bring a lot of water and snacks. Start early. Easily takes 5 hours not including the time you hang out at the top. Probably the best hike I've done

Very difficult trail but worth the effort. Many steep areas but there always seemed to be enough footholds to get you up and down. Go early, it can get busy in the mid to late morning.

Tough hike very technical but so worth it when you get to the top. Go early it's about 5 hours round trip and parking gets full fast at siphon draw trailhead.
