I only do trails that are dog friendly and there comes a point on the trail where it is not safe for a dog. I had to turn back. Unless your dog can climb like a mountain lion I wouldn't take a dog. Great trail other wise.

Great hike up to some spectacular views! My friends and I started this hike at noon thinking it would be a quick out and back since it was only a mile, but it took us close to an hour and a half to get up, enjoy the views, and then get down. Despite the midday heat, I still really enjoyed this hike. The last stretch to the top I would say is more hard than moderate because it does involve some scrambling.

Quick, pretty easy scramble up to a gorgeous view. We went at sunset which was great bc it wasn't too hot and there weren't too many people.
