Great incline and views. Light showers on the way down. If you are looking for distance and a challenge this is a good choice.

Good amount of climb without being unbearable, and unbelievable views!

This hike was on my agenda of hikes, a friend tag along, it was her first time hiking, well least to say, SHE HOOK. It was a nice day hike, light showers in the morning, not too many bugs, the water was comfortable to swim. Climbing the watchtower was a little challenging for myself, do not climb the watchtower without proper footwear. Being my friend first hike she felt it was strenuous and as for me, it a clean clear
trail, not many rock steps, an easy to moderate hike.

This was a tough hike, but worth it for me. There are great views, nice waterfalls to cross, and a somewhat secluded lake to nap at before heading back. There was some snow up around the lake, but nothing to impede our trip.
