Fairly easy 30min hike. Thought there was a bit of scrambling from what I've read from other reviews, but there were none. Anyway it was absolutely gorgeous with the blue water!!

A steady climb as you work your way around the mountain towards the backside. It levels out to a beautiful meadow which is a great place to prep before taking in the steep ascent to the peak. A bit of scrambling towards the top but once that peak is reached prepare for breathtaking views all around

Amazing view at the top. A little steep when you get to the scrambling area.
