Only hiked to the Y - we did so with 4 kids under the age of 6. Decent incline but it was too short and there are waaaaay too many people on this trail for me; definitely not 'moderately trafficked' (at least the first third). But, all said it's a good one with kids!
awesome rewarding view from top.
Great hike on a Sunday afternoon. There were a couple steep area but overall not technical. Saw a some mountain goats on the way up.
Beautiful hike. Went on a friday evening and got to the top just in time for the sunset and it was such a great view. We saw two people on their way down while we were on our way up past the "Y", but never saw another person. Had such a great time having it to ourselves. No rivers or streams or lakes but it definitely got very pretty toward the top. I would recommend it for sure but it could be a bit tough to stay on the trail if you aren't with someone who has done it before!
Going to the top of the mountain there are plenty of steep areas that tire you out, but the view from on top for sunset is incredible!!!! Definitely worth the hike!! Make sure to stay right at the fork. Look for a "Y" carved into a tree.
Fairly difficult hike I would say, for the distance it's quite a bit of elevation gain. I hiked timp the week before, and this one seemed to have been harder on my legs. The view is absolutely beautiful and it was well worth the difficult hike to the top. Definitely will be going again.
beautiful trail, can get crowded so go very early to enjoy it alone. consistent uphill so it's difficult. the views are worth the effort!
A very straightforward hike with a great end view. Worth a visit.
They need to add rest areas. It's steep. Under construction.
I Love this hike perfect for kids short but hard so they feel very accomplished
very nice hike! its under construction up to the y but no problems just a little dusty. 1 mile to the bottom of the y. I continued to the top and it has nice trail some shaded areas along the way. a little over 6 miles round trip very fun hike!
Pretty good hike. It was a bit steep and dusty but overall short and sweet. Due to the incline I would recommend shoes with good traction.
Dogs are allowed on leash, but with how little shade there is I wouldn't recommend taking a pup during peak sun or heat. If you do, be sure to bring them water.
The views are spectacular, but the Y itself was incredibly underwhelming. Rather than a collection of white stones like I was expecting, it's an unattractive glob of painted concrete. It's ugly to say the least, and detracts from the natural surrounding.
