Wide, well maintained trail. Very green with great views from top. A tad muddy since we just got some rain this weekend. A nice starter hike.

Not dog friendly. Spoke to the ranger and huge No Dogs sign.

Great starter hike. Did this with a group of cub scouts and they were all able to do it. Some of the smaller kids had trouble with the up hill but still made it. The view is great at the top!
