Easy, little bit steep at certain parts of the trail but cool view once you get to the top. Be careful with glass that’s up near the pumpkin!

The trail itself is boring, but worth it for the photo op with the huge pumpkin

Super easy, short but steep! I brought my little dogs and had to pick them up near the end because a coyote was dangerously near. Luckily two people on horses scared it off for me. I didn't expect to see a coyote at 1:40 in the afternoon but I did and probably won't bring the little ones again by myself because it was a scary situation.

Great intro hike! Steep in some places. Definitely not stroller friendly, but great for kids who can walk!

There are many different trails that go up to the rock. Some are more of an incline than others. I definitely recommend that you wear shoes that have good tread because it’s so easy to slip.
