    Samantha Valdivia reviewed Elden Lookout Trail

    A challenging uphill trek with gorgeous views. We did this in a thunderstorm, which was quite the challenge!

    This hike is definitely hard!... but worth it for the views at the peak. It is not marked well, though, so a few times we got off track then turned around. At the peak, we saw a couple who started an hour before us, but ended up getting lost so it took them longer to reach the peak. Nonetheless, it was worth it.

    Great, quick hike with plenty of uphill inclines to feel like you are really hiking! I wouldn't suggest taking kids under the age of 7, though, unless you are sure they have the stamina. My 5 year old had many meltdowns, and I had to carry her a lot. Hahaha Fun, nonetheless!

    The final 3 miles are steep, so new hikers -- be prepared to hurt the next day. There is a great observatory area at the top with clean restrooms and a space to rest for a bit before the hike back down.

    Beautiful scenery with the peaceful sound of coming from the streams of water. The recent storms have made this hike more tricky to maneuver across rocks through the streams, but it is more exciting that way. I completed this hike two times in one week -- once before the storm, once after. It was like a completely different trail after the storm!
