I went the day after a storm and it was very windy and chilly, but it was still a great hike. It has several parts that are staircases made with rocks. This made the hike a bit easy except that I'm short, so some of the steps were a bit high for me. I LOVED the view on top. There are benches for those who want to take a break and take in the sight.

Camped out in Black Rock Canyon Campground, and took a quick trip up to Hi-View. This trail is also called the West Side Loop Trail, and is accessible right from the outskirts of the campground. The trail is VERY maintained, there are nice rock-luged stairs where the grade gets a little too steep. The view from the top is GREAT, although could sometimes be EXTREMELY windy/cold depending on season. It's the end of January, and our entire camping trip/hike was plagued by seriously high winds. There was a storm coming in, don't know if the had anything to do with it specifically, or if the area is randomly windy.
