Not a walk, Steep and often narrow trail, with loose rock,gravel,sand and in places climb over rocks. Proper footwear and good balance required. Good mental & physical challenge! 45-60 minutes up a reasonable goal.

Quick hike with amazing views! I️ come here every time I️ visit! Early morning as the sunrises will give you great photo opportunities! Also look for the white dots spray painted on the path to keep you on track. There’s also a small area at the top with picnic tables for a small snack. Enjoy!

This was a great moderate hike. Incredible views. Caution on the way down as it was slippery gravel and lots of rocks to climb over.

Great trail for a good cardio workout! Very nice views as well. Just be sure to follow the white dots to stay on trail. A little confusing at first but overall pretty good.
