Have been here many times because of the scenic views. Simple trail walk, definitely a must to see the ruins.

This is more of a mountain stroll to a pretty lookout. No hiking gear necessary. Would be a nice spot for a picnic.

I don't think this is a trail, but more of an old fire road.

It's a nice walk that has a view at the end, nothing more. Usually crowded all of the time.
