The view from the top isn't super special unfortunately with I-10 in view but the climbing aspect of this trail definitely makes it fun and unique! This is my first "Hard" rating I've completed on here and as a 25 year old athlete...it lives up to the name. Not for the faint of heart!

Did this hike with a few others a while back on a Mothers Day. It's not your normal hike, that's for sure. It's up and then down and then up again, and all of that has it's own individual quirks to it. The first up section from the parking lot is typical, then it's down the back side of that saddle with cables to hold on to, and then up again with some very steep sections with cables. Crazy trail. The view once on top is pretty decent. Once is enough for me though. Not one I would go back and do over again.

Completed this hike with my husband and 8 year old daughter on 3.25.17. It was definitely a challenge but so worth it! The views from the top were amazing!

Went a few weeks ago, Did this hike and picture taking expedition for a day trip and it was worth it. Plenty of parking, different trails for what ever your level is and great views. The wildflowers were also beautiful this time of year.
