SOLID hike! Pretty challenging in parts and best to wear hiking boots. Trail is really well marked with some great vista points.

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.
