Went up for landscape photography and was not disappointed by the views. The hike was steep in a few areas. It was probably easier because I stopped to set up my gear at every viewpoint I could find. I continued past the trail to reach the peak. The trail I took was clearly labelled, warning that it was not maintained, and to proceed with caution. It was no worse off than the rest of the trail when I went, so that is a bonus. Will definitely be going back.

Nice views at the top. Elevation is quick but not too tough. Once you get up and down the Lower Trail loop is a nice cool down before heading back to the parking lot.

Great hike. Good with kids. A few steep sections where you need to watch your step. Natural trail with roots and sections of loose gravel. Lowland start of hike has a boardwalk over the muddy areas. Beautiful views from the top of the ridge of other islands and ocean to he south of the island.
