Fun rock scrambling so wear good hiking shoes. Some scrambles were difficult but you will be rewarded with great views!

A challenging hike! Blue and white trails have some very difficult terrain. highly recommend a quality pair of boots before attempting. Views from the tower are great, and this trail mostly avoids the heavily trafficked tower trail.

I would actually recommend following the blue trail all the way though. Taking the white trail on the return leg is just as difficult and not nearly as rewarding.
