You end up parking just short of the start point and begin walking down a road to markers and signs along the route. first marker is a wooden red arrow that leads you away from residential houses and starts the trail through the valley. Youll continue up this path until you hit a three way wooden sign. If you go left at the wooden sign it's a steep switch back to 1st peak, straight will lead you through the valley to another wooden two way sign. we took the left path. After about 800 ft of elevation you'll hit the first peak, amazing views. You continue over a Ridgeline about 3 feet wide to the second and third peak. all three peaks are equally amazing. After the third peak you'll begin the descent down back to the valley. looks for the pink, red, or white tape on the trees to follow the path. It leads back to the 2nd wooden sign I mentioned earlier on. In my experience taking a left at the first three way wooden sign is the way to go. Look out for loose rocks and hand holds. Recommend some good hiking shoes that support the ankles.

Great hike, watch for ankle rollers.

Fun fact: my group and I got caught on the ridge at sunset and had to forge our own trail down. So don’t do that and you’ll be fine :P

This was a very fun and exciting hike. In the beginning, the path through the jungle, the rocks are slippery, Once you reach the first juncture, prepare to do some climbing. The trails are well marked and the path itself is easily recognizable so you don't have to worry about going off trail or losing it easily. The viewpoints are spectacular, weather dependent of course.

A very short but challenging hike. Plan on basically being on a stair stepper for 2 miles. Very sharp rocks and some slippery muddy areas. The view is great at the top.
