First time hiking; will definitely take this trail again, and others. Hiked the trail with my family (husband, 3 year old, 2 month old, brother, niece). 3 year old made it to the top and down with minimal assistance. Rocky, but manageable, if you're careful where you step.

Despite the loose rocks I really loved the summit trail. Great great views from the saddle and the top. A little bit of scramble but not bad.

I really enjoyed hiking this trail with my 6 pound pup. Took a little over a hour to reach the top and down. It is a steep trail but, we were able to do it just fine. It is a rocky trail so, good hiking shoes is recommended. I’ll be doing this trail again. Parking is limited.

I liked the short, steep hike with great views at the summit. I'd definitely wear hiking boots. It's rocky.

The trail to the top is challenging and offers great views. Lots of loose scree. The loop around isn't terribly well marked. Definitely use the all trails map to keep on track.

This was a super fun trail but a little too rocky for our 3 dogs near the summit.
