Great evening hike! One exception is the trail is confusing when you reach the base of the hill( before getting to the top) as which path to take going it up over the boulders can be a challenge if you have bad knees or back. It’s beautiful once you get to the top. I plan on this to be my go to hike for the summer. I am 58 out of shape took me a hour to get up to the top, lots of places to stop and breath.

Beautiful views at the top. I counted 526 steps on the way up and recorded 2.31 miles roundtrip from the parking lot. It is not as strenuous as you’d think. Definitely worth it! Also, we had a big truck pulling an RV and were able to park just fine. Parking is $5.

Good hike. If you are with young children be prepared to carry them because there are a lot of stairs.

It's pretty straight uphill almost the entire way but it's not extremely strenuous. Dog friendly. great views from the top.
