Challenging hike up but on the way up but the views are incredible and seeing the ocean the entire walk back down was so nice. Glad we didn't hike the opposite way as many others were doing.

I went on a Monday or Tuesday and it was fairly empty. I took the stairs to the left to start the hike. Steep, longish climb, so be ready for a workout. I wouldn't rate this trail as easy. It's more on the moderate side. The only disappointment was seeing so many houses on the way up. Coming down the waterfall side it was beautiful.

Oh keep an eye and ear out for rattlers!
