What a great hike! Easy to lose the main trail to the top, follow white and blue markings to be sure you're on the right path. Even though we got off the main trail, it was a crazy awesome hike - would definitely recommend if you're ready for a challenge!
cost was $6 to get into the park. I wouldn't recommend dogs on the trail past the beginning 2 miles.

My trip was crazy. So, first you have this boring stretch of dirt paths, but then you get to really rocky areas. Then, you get to boulders and your suppose to climb between 8 inches of space between 2 rocks. And you climb around 8 feet. It's hard but I got to the top. 12 year old completed it but it definitely is hard. Dogs can go on the first part, where there's dirt, but it's much harder after that.
After we started going down, we got lost. We tried to go on a different place because we went off the trail on accident. But in the process I scraped basically every place on my body. We finally made it down.
Bring at least 5 water bottles if you plan to go to the top!
