The view from the top is worth 2.7 miles up! The first mile and a half was a heart pumping challenge, but was balanced with beautiful sites all the way up.

Steep hike, take a stick for some stabilization assistance. The signage is a little tricky, but the app helps! If you decide to climb the rocks at the end be careful and be smart :)

Pretty steep but great hike. Mostly in the shade and very clean. Definitely worth seeing the view from the top.

Not too hard, not to easy. Wonderful views, perfect for the dog as well
