As good as it gets! I loved this trail. Beautiful views, nice mix of ups and downs, gorgeous wooded areas. I can’t wait to go back!

Great, peaceful hike with views from the parking lot most of the way up. Great variety and the westpoint inn is a lovely spot to stop for a rest and soak in the views from a rocking chair. Best part of this hike is that there’s two clean bathrooms along the way! On a Sunday afternoon, we saw a handful of other groups, but the trail still felt quiet.

I would definitely rate this hike moderate, not hard. It wasn’t very steep.

Fantastic hike. Pass several waterfalls, redwood groves, amazing staircases. Opens up to some perfect views to photograph. The last staircase to the fire tower, is beautiful. Opted to walk down the stair case trails otwb and there were amazing views to reward you for that choice. Stopped both times at the West Point inn. Nice to sit on the patio and watch the hummingbirds at the feeder. Some times seven at a time! Food and snacks at the inn are on honor system, so bring a few $'s in case you want tea or soup or something. Rewarding hike.
