The trail is easy, especially easy being that I was not at 110 percent. slightly gimpy foot. We were blessed with clouds and it had rained that night and front was moving through, so the temperature was very mild.

Fun trail. It's a gradual uphill hike all the way to the beautiful rocks which sometimes fill with cascading water. This time of year no water, more like a small puddle full of wasps. Be careful. We also saw a beautiful colored lizard 年 on our way back. I now wonder if that was someone's pet. I'll post a picture. We got close enough, without it scurrying away. My dad even poured some water on a rock and it approached and drank water as it was being poured. That's definitely not something I've seen before. We arrived 7am and got back 9:30am we hanged around the top for a while.
