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.

Nice climb. One of the switchbacks can leave someone with a fear of heights a little nervous.

Did this after doing the Bear Mountain. Definitely not a solitude hike.

Definitely needs to be upgraded to moderate/hard as this is a pretty steep and narrow path although plenty of people were going up without too much trouble.
