Awesome views, plus some really cool caves on the way up, just a bit off the trail.

Best short hike ever. Been doing this hike since 1990 and it never disappoints. If you're lucky, no one else will be on top when you get there! Go on a weekday...

A great, short hike! Very interesting with a couple of harder spots but if you are minimally fit you should be able to get to the top. The problem with this trail is the poor trail markings. Some of the people we met on the trail never found the top which is a shame because the view is fabulous. We did this on Columbus Day and there were only a few others there.

Not as busy as other popular trails, which is nice. You hike past a stream, go over a bridge and see some cool caves before reaching the top to see an amazing view. Fun family hike.

Did this hike as the Castle Rock loop. The view was breathtaking! Trail was relatively easy to follow with some interesting rock formations.
