Nice trail but not much of a view from the top. Fairly flat/moderate incline for the first 2/3 or so and then a decent climb for the last 1/3. I’d recommend hiking shoes/boots. Trail is pretty rocky. But definitely still doable in runners.

Fairly easy trail more steeper 10 minutes from the top (cliffs). Kinda overcast when I was there and than the thunder started. Had a drizzly rain all the way back down helped cook me off. LOL
