BEAUTIFUL morning hike. recommend run rise hours to catch the beauty. Worth it
Great hike, challenging & great views
Great Hike awesome views!!!
Great hike and a great workout, sunset was awesome. Good views all round a must do hike
Awesome! Starts out nice & straight ... then the turns & hills start coming at you. I liked the trail mostly because you couldn't see most of it as you progress but you knew you have to get up that mountain somehow. The only downside is that once you reach the top ... there is no sign, plaque only a wooden pole ... I felt jipped! But other than that ... AWESOME!
I love this hike but it is best to go early on a weekday because it is popular and busy on the weekends.
Really fun but go EARLY to avoid the crowds. I couldn't believe the amount of cars parked on BOTH sides of the street.
Beautiful scenery and wildlife.
its a wonderful hike with beautiful views all around
Beautiful views...nice quality trail, but not for the out of shape. Took just over an hour to summit at a steady pace. Definitely recommend!!
Great trail. Lost of people. Starts out easy then picks up once you hit the incline. Recommend to anyone.
Just hiked this with 3 friends. I'm not in the best of shape right now and the elevation got to me at times but overall it was a very beautiful hike. I saw lots of dogs & little kids. It was strenuous for adults so not sure why people brought their four year olds- they looked miserable. Barely any shade so pack on the sunscreen. Make sure you start early. The parking lot has limited spots but there is street parking on the side coming up to the parking lot. Overall the view was gorgeous from the top & worth it! Probably around 2 1/2 hours start to finish :)
I hike it a couple of times a week. I love it except it gets really rocky and you have to be careful with slipping and ankles. Wear good shoes.
Great hike. Go early! Great view at the top
