a hidden gem! pretty steep parts, lots of rocks. it was challenging for a beginner like myself but doable. The view at the end was totally worth the hike up. beautiful. also the entrance is a little hidden, basically on the side of the main road.

Good hike. Tricky in certain parts due to rocky terrain you have to climb over and around. And because of the rocky terrain, it can be easy to lose the trail since it's not always a clear path through the woods. All in all, though, I'd do it again.
