Great hike with a breathtaking view !

AMAZING trail. A little on the wet, muddy and slippery slide though, so wear your hiking boots. Beware of the tree roots and slippery rock surfaces. The view is brilliant — well worth it!

Wear the right shoes for this one! Saw a lot of people in flip-flops...

I don’t think I have ever been more happy with such a short hike. So breathtakingly beautiful. The first part is steep downhill and then it levels off. This is rated “hard”.... but my 12 year old and my husband and I did this in flip flops. It was a dry day... if the trail was muddy I would have called it moderate. There were a few “holy crap that’s far down” moments, but if you are not stupid and are fairly active, you’ll be fine. Gorgeous gorgeous rewards for such a short trip.
