A relatively easy hike until this loop at the southmost point. There is NO trail there. We persevered trying to make our way using GPS & finally did, but it was nothing less than treacherous and in my opinion DANGEROUS. This loop on this trip should NEVER have been left on the AllTrails site. We are very experienced hikers and never have encountered anything like this. Our worst hike ever (and we hike 72 miles/month)

Short and easy, good to get away from the crowd for a while

Awesome hike!

Fun and not that difficult, just a lot of steps.

Not for strollers, but easy enough for the whole family, even on some of the tougher parts there are great rest areas.

As easy as it gets. Great for photographs!

very nice wonderful to see such a majestic sculpture, suggest going counter clockwise, afternoon is better after crowds thin out.
