The view up top is what gives it 4 stars. Amazing view and cool rock formations. Otherwise it was pretty meh. Might be better when more foliage

Great trail, definitely a hike but well worth it for the view. Tried to do the sage loop on my way back down, couldn't find where the trail re entered the forest off the gravel road, ended up up just hiking back up.
