Coming from the Rockies, I may be a little biased, but Trail was still great. Wasn’t the prettiest trail or the hardest trail, however, before the fog rolled in the views were good and sections were reasonably challenging. Not a lot of people on the trail when I was there, so that was good.

One of the most physically challenging but rewarding hikes I've ever been on. Take a good 45 minutes to an hour to get up to the peak but totally worth it. Inclines are moderate but it's a journey as there's boulders to traverse and uneven ground at times. The rock formations up top are amazing and the views are second to none. Highly recommended. Bring water, a snack and make sure you wear good hiking shoes or boots.
