My go-to for amazing views without a big time commitment. It's a popular trail, which can be bothersome, but it's popular with good reason.

We did this with our whole family at thanksgiving. Ages 5-60. It's not terribly difficult. It was VERY crowded however. So expect to share the views with others. Well maintained Trail and a spectacular view at the top. If you are looking for an easy and short hike with a great view this would be a good choice.

Loved this trail and so did my boys (ages 5 and 7). Not a difficult hike but shoes with good grip are important. I definitely wouldn't attempt this hike if the trail were wet - lots of slick rocks. Views are amazing - this is definitely one of our favorites so far.

A short hike up to terrific views. Some steep trail sections. This is a favorite to many and can get quite crowded.
