A quieter hike that gives you all the views near one of the most traveled trails. It's especially nice to have some variance in the height to keep it interesting instead of all up or down.
This was an easier moderate trail. It was fairly crowded when I went on a holiday. The trail narrows in spots that were hard to navigate with a dog while passing other hikers with dogs. If I didn't hike with my dog, I'd probably rate this hike a 4.
