Wow. This was an incredibly hard trail. I really thought I was going to have a hard fall on the more treacherous parts, perhaps even fatal. Beware because the very steep granite was very damp when we went, like mid-late April, due to the snow melt. It is HARD. There are a lot of parts where you have to keep moving due to the steepness of the area- you will start slipping if not. It may only be 3.3 miles but it seriously feels like so much more due to the steepness. There was also plenty of scrambling, which I was certainly not prepared for. we encountered a snake and a fox on this trail in the middle of the day, so beware of possible critters! I also highly recommend not descending this trail as I couldn't even imagine how much more difficult it would be- perhaps have someone waiting for you at the summit in a car. One last thing- be careful to really watch out to stay on trail as the trail markers are easy to miss. Be very careful on this trail!

Very easy to walk and the views are incredible.

The trail is closed between March 15 and August 15 due to falcon nesting

Great views from the top. Hike is super short and not difficult at all and is fine for kids and dogs. Would def recommend.

Great trail. Good amount of elevation change, some scrambling opportunities, but would be ok for most people. Not super challenging so I would say moderate is the right rating.

Challenging beehive climb. Climb up beehive - not down. You'll make enemies. The rest is smooth sailing.

Could have used more ladders. Second half of the loop was not as exciting as I hoped. Still beautiful though. Great workout!
