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.

Mostly consistent uphill hike but worth it. Beautiful wildflowers along the way and the view is beautiful. The only negative thing is a construction pit and what looks like a parking lot that is an eyesore.
