After walking the trail to the top, you can easily get back to your vehicle by taking the easy shortcut down the hill.

Not a lot of sights for the effort it takes.

Really good moderate trek experience. Had lots of fun today. So many places to take a breather and enjoy the view. Well maintained.

Super pretty super short canopy covered trail through enchanting trees and massive rock formations. I love it.

This hike is easy as pie. It's more like a nature walk with little elevation change. It is great for those days where you don't want to commit to anything hard but still want to smell the forest. I loved it.

Did not realize this was a trek from the Parkin lot. Had a ton of gear and super unprepared. But it was a adventure. This was way back in 1998.
