Loved this trail. Spectacular views!
A fun, fairly quick hike to the top. We visited on a rainy day and the trail was manageable but with a creek running down its center. the incline is easy to moderate at best.
Fun hike in snow last week and also very beautiful trail!!
Great hike with lots of panoramic views.
Great trail! Amazing views! High elevation and will definitely work your lungs! The views from the top are well worth it!
Immediate and steady moderate climbing through the first 1.25 miles of the hike. Second half of the ascent was easier and primarily through high meadows. Views of 60+ miles to the Coronado Islands are possible on a clear day. Recommend hiking around late afternoon towards dusk for sunset views.
A lot of one way up hill and one way down hill but fun hike.
Great hike....highly recommended it...
This was a beautiful trail to hike but, not a good hike for beginners. We had 2 non-hikers in our group & the constant climb was a little much for them. The hike down however, was easy peasy.
Friendly people on the trail and cute pups everywhere
Fun and beautiful. Serene.
