Though hike up as the trail is up hill the entire way, so be ready for a good hike! Great views at the top make it well worth the trek up.

Uphill all the way up. Quick down as gravity helps. Great views!

Enjoyed the trial with a great view at the end. Some technical aspects through last few switchbacks.

Good hike, but not my favourite. Lots of switchbacks and a fairly steep incline but can be done without poles. Views at the top are decent but the parking lot/construction does take away from it a bit. Took about 2.5 hours with a stop at the top for lunch.

This was a good hike, but with the fires in the area the air quality was not the best and the smoke and haze did not help the view. Still worth it.

The view at the end of the trail is well worth the hike up. Just gorgeous! It's quite an uphill climb in parts, but if you take breaks when you need to, the reward at the end is well worth it. The trail itself is very visible all the way through and easy to walk...but quite an incline the majority of the way up.
