This hike is definitely a workout to get up. Cactus are close throughout the trail so be careful where you step. There were flys everywhere and the top had a hive of bees which made the viewing at the top brief. Not a bad hike overall.

Gorgeous black rocks! This is a slippery, rocky trail so wear good hiking boots.

Not that well marked. Moderate to hard. You know you're at the top when you find the American flag. Great views from top make it worth it.
