Well maintained path, not particularly challenging except for the elevation change. Beautiful views especially from the "chin".

Beautiful trail with gorgeous forest of enormous Norfolk Pines. Fairly steep but not too bad, nice place to picnic at top with several different views of the island.

A little harder than I had anticipated, you can get winded quite easily! Overall, great trail and the views are spectacular!

Was expecting it to be super muddy from hiking secret falls last year and reading the prior reviews.. it rained for a few minutes on the way up but way less mud barely any we must of got lucky .. the way up is way harder then the way down .. steep incline and some scrambling needed towards the top.. it has awesome views that you can pretty much see 360 around you which is very rare on a hike .. I would definitely do this from either the east or west we will be trying the east before we leave it was that good
