Saw Pasque Flowers at lower elevations. Loved the views, the company and the the sweet cascade.
Going counter clockwise on this trail is the hard way. The switchbacks were rough, but definitely gave me the workout/hike I was looking for. A very great trail with amazing views of both the mountains and the city. Bring lots of water.
The view at the top is amazing, and is not to hard for new hikers. Even with my camera equipment it wasn't that hard. Towards the top it does get more of an incline but overall good hike. If you want to see a nice video before you go click this link:
Great hike with kids! Lots to see, lots of changes in the trail.
It was a fun trail my sister and I hiked while visiting for Spring break. It had some really nice views from the top. There are a lot of trails off of it as well that you can adventure down, which was fun. We saw a lot of animals.
One of my favorite hikes. Good any time of the year. A lot of bikers when it's warm out.
