Fun hike with great views
Very nice views from the top, a few short scrambles, quite a few spots where the trail is 1-2 ft from sheer drop so caution etc
definitely good for a view. alot of vertical climbing and rocks to make your way through. didn't find any landmarks. I like to hike to a location, and explore old historical places if the hike allows. Was proud to summit after the effort though!
A decent workout. A little bit of scrambling from time to time. The effort is well worth it, with some amazing panoramic views at the top of the mountain about three-quarters of a mile into the trail.
Been hiking this trail for years it's a good one with great views and a nice moderate trail
