We hiked to the first overlook, about 3.7 miles and it was definitely worth the hike. The view is gorgeous and you can see miles and miles of mountains. You could even see where we started from. I highly recommend it to anyone. Don't let the steeper climb near the end stop you. :)

We hiked as a 10+ mile put and back (as a recommendation from another hiker). Great trail and the views are beautiful from the top. A great reward after the 21 switchbacks to get to the top.
