On a clear day this hike is so worth it! It is all up and all down, so be prepared and bring water. The views keep getting better and better as you go.

No. No. No. No. Do not try this trail unless you have a lot of experience on your hands and knees.

The trail is unmarked and not maintained. The first half mile is vertical and the ground is eroded which means that you will be pulling yourself up by roots and branches. Once past that, you go through some very thick bush before coming out into a more pleasurable but still difficult climb/hike. The only reason this hike is any good is because of the amazing views from the top.

If you can stand the climb up (and the slide down) this hike is good and worth the risks.
