Beautiful views, shaded on the trail and nice resting benches for the climb back up. Be prepared for some stairs.

Great hike, beautiful view, pretty easy but the going back up really gets you!

Loved this trail! Great views from the rocks, and a shaded trail with pretty views on the way there. Make sure you're ready for the climb back up

Amazing view! Such a cool spot. I'm ridiculously out of shape (no exaggeration), so the uphill climb on the way back took a while, but was graciously helped by the strategic placement of benches along the trail (which often overlook interesting rocks or other pretty bits of scenery). This was our first trail using the app, and I'm hooked!

Easy, accessible trail. Walkable for all skill levels with some stairs on the way back. The great view out on the rock is worthy of positive ratings, however the heavy traffic of this area means plenty of noise and litter.

Decent little hike. Has stairs for most of the steep parts. There's little shade on the rock so try and go when the sun isn't at its highest and hottest. It's as exciting as you'd think a rock chained to another is.

Just got back from hiking this fairly easy trail. The climb onto the large boulder to see the 'chained rock' was somewhat disappointing as I did not see the said chain. It was a nice hike overall.

Weird story, but the hike up is pretty. I did it in the Summer and the greenage was amazing. The view from the top of the rock is the icing on the cake. Enjoyed it.
