Sensational Hike

Trail itself was OK -- it was almost completely covered in hard, slick ice. Very heavily trafficked so I would not recommend this trail for anyone seeking solitude. YOU WILL NEED YAK-TRAX OR CRAMPONS TO HIKE!

Really nice views and a fun hike. Some scrambling thrown in there if you stray off and upwards of the zigzagging path. Saw tons of dogs being walked up this!

Incredible views.

Somewhat strenuous for your average hiker. Make sure you have micro-spikes or at least hiking boats since much of the ground is covered in ice/snow this time of year.

solid trail for a short hike with people visiting from lower elevations. Not too difficult if you're in good condition and take your time.
