Pretty hike with quick elevation gain via switchbacks and a little scrambling. Pretty views along path and at top of Mesa. We did this close to sunset which was pretty but we were chasing daylight on way back down. A headlamp would be handy if you want to watch the sky for a bit after sun sets.

Great hike to do at sunset! Awesome 360 degree views from the summit. Moderate, short hike with a quick incline.

This hike is quite short, only taking me 15 minutes to get to the top of this large plateau. The plateau is quite large and you can just wander around its edge as much or as little as you like.

4 Stars because it was a fairly busy trail.

As someone who has a terrible fear of heights, I did not make it up to the top of the trail unfortunately, although the views on the way up are spectacular. I think I got pretty close to the top, but the trail became extremely narrow over some very smooth boulders with a steep drop-off -- and a panic attack set in. Not a good spot for that to happen, let me tell you. I wish I would have known how much longer the trail would be like that, but several people were also turning back in that same spot due to difficulty, so I didn't feel too bad. Maybe next time I will make it to the top! Agreed with others that this trail should be upgraded to hard or at least moderate, with a caution for those afraid of heights.

By far the best view in town. Steep to get there, but it’s a short climb. Take a dizzying stroll around the mesa top once you’re there to see the entire valley.
