You can hike this trail a couple of different ways. At the trailhead you’ll start up a moderately steep incline. Eventually you’ll come to a fork. If you hike this loop counter clockwise, it snakes back and forth up the incline gradually. If you want a real challenge, hike the loop CLOCKWISE. It’s much more rewarding to basically crawl vertically to the top of the point. Once at the top, stop and stay a while. We hiked down continuing clockwise, which was gorgeous as well. Talk about views. Take plenty of water.
