We hit this in the heat of the day and it was very hot. Go earlier and be prepared to walk up some rocky switchbacks. Nice views though, and cool to explore the buildings when they're not in season.

Pretty fun trail! Can make it up in less than an hour if you cut out some switchbacks and hit the vert! Nice view from the top.

Awesome hike up the hill. The rocks make sure you’re paying attention. Solid views.

This trail is truly amazing, described as a "Nature Photographers Dream" it definitely does not disappoint. Its features a Ski Lodge, a waterfall and stunning 360 views of snow capped peaks. Don't be fooled by thinking this is easy because its only 4.5km there and back, its very steep and you'll be walking on stones most of the way. Takes roughly 1 and a half - 2 hours each way at a steady pace.
