Not too hard but good stair exercise.
Great hike and incredible views from the summit, but the crowds make me avoid it. I will say my kids and dogs love it. If you're going, go early or you'll be parking a mile away.
Great hike and an amazing view. Trail can be fairly rocky, narrow and crowded but overall it was worth it. Parking can be a pain as well.
My 4 year old made it to the top and back to the car
Fun with dogs.
It's definitely a work out, but there's not much to see. If you want good views go at sunrise. Also helps you avoid the crowd. This trail is super populated.
nice views at the top but is always crowded
