Unstable footing on the way up to the peak. Be careful. Fun!

Unbeatable views of the estuary, and I look forward to doing it again. However, when you really start gain elevation the trail is VERY washed out, at some points you're climbing a narrow rut more than a foot deep.

Great hike! Lots of activity on the trail. I recommend a walking stick(s) on the last .5 mile of the trail peak. Lits of loose gravel and deep steps.

Fun little hike. Not far but steep! Very humid, we were sweating like dogs in 70 degree weather! Views from the top are great.

Pretty difficult given the loose ground and rocky top (do not do it unless you have good tread). But beautiful at the top!

View was amazing. Rock climbing towards the end. Scoot down on your butt on the way down. There’s one section that cuts through pretty overgrown brush so solid tick checks are a must. Pulled two off my daughters jacket but she’s four and is terrible at not touching the plants.

This is one of my all time favorite trails but is very overgrown at the moment!! Lots of bugs and poison oak but very worth it at the top!

Overcast but there is no shade here. Plenty of ticks in the brush. The trail has been poorly maintained near the top. The main track is heavily washed out with a deep rut down the middle. Very rocky near the top and hard to keep the main trail. We needed to clamber over boulders to get to the summit. It’s a lot more technical due to the poor conditions.

it's a must hike to be able to check off one of the five sister peaks you can go up but it is by far the most difficult in terms of accessibility. Where the trail breaks off to begin climbing to the top of the peak is pretty much straight up, lots of loose sand and rock make for a challenging trip down (we slid on our butts in multiple sections) the view is amazing of course once you get there. Glad to say I've done it but won't be back anytime soon! lol

Gradually increasing steepness. The trial ends near the summit, where it is rock hopping from there to the top. Great view.
