This trail recording needs to be updated/fixed. Or another trail needs to be made. Following this will make you climb rocks (probably unnecessarily as i backtracked and it appeared there was an easier path). At the rock in my picture stay straight/left and follow it around to backside of trail/mountain. I think. This had some nice views but if you want verified badge it is a lot harder than it needs to be. Very poorly marked in general as well. So good place to go hiking just be aware of where you are so you don’t get too lost.

Great hike. Go in morning to avoid heat, and bring lots of water.

Loved this trail. Not as hard as the reviews said. Felt like a kid playing in the crack!

Did this trail on 19/01/2020 and it was great. There is a small section that requires a slight bit of bouldering but it is nothing that a basic hiker could not manage. This trail can get VERY busy so I suggest an early start...

Interesting loop, starts out on wash and hike up Flattop. Trail not very well marked once climbing up starts. Loose rocks most of hike, take your time. Did hike clockwise, one spot on way down where you need to sit on but and shimmy down. Good views up top. Hike took 2 hours, 90 degrees at end of hike. Lots of water, 2 liters. Trail markings by number 2.
