Incredible views from this peak! We camped at Elfin and did this trail the next day. Took us 2 hours return from the shelter. Very steep and loose terrain in parts - poles helped. But 360 degree view with mountains in all directions - well worth it!

Completed July 30, 2020. Just under 4 hours from the parking lot to the far northern peak. Absolutely stunning view, 360 degrees! Fantastic shot of diamond head. As an avid hiker in good shape, I would not consider this a moderate hike from elfin lakes to the peak of the gargoyles; it was difficult. Scramble all the way Up. Runners or hikers.

great panoramic views at the top of gargoyles and columnar peak. As a day hike, we started out at the parking lot around 8:20am on Sunday, returning at 6ish pm.
