It is definitely not for those new to the area/ hiking. It’s not actually difficult, the elevation climb is just continuous and there is little shade but it’s beautiful, with great views. The trail is extremely well maintained, wide and somewhat high traffic but plenty of room to pass and most people put up masks out of courtesy when passing. The cost was a little steep for a one day pass compared to what we are used to ($9)

Luckily most people were social distancing when passing each other with plenty of room and a face mask on. We thought we would get an early start at 9:00 a.m. but the parking lot was jam-packed and there were a ton of people on the trail.

My 10 year old son say he likes it. He says it was a little and a bit bumpy but he liked it. The view from the top was fantastic.

First to Review

This hike was alright. Good winter hike because it wasn’t snow packed, just a little icy in a few places. Not very challenging, but good views from the top. Plenty of parking, but you do have to get a day pass, which cost me 9 dollars. Make a day out of it if you go, there are multiple trails in the area.
