Great hike. I would not hike it if you are afraid of heights. Some minor climbing needed through iron stairs, you will have to use your hands intensively.

Great hike away from the crowds at Thunder Rock. Went on a rainy day, very peaceful but the mostly rocky trail gets a bit slippery so leave plenty of extra time. Although this trail is rated "moderate " here, a two mile section travels over the same route as the Beehive Loop which is rated "difficult" due to the vertical climb on iron foot holds, so review that trail's discussions before you go. There is a section of the Bowl trail that gets you around on an alternate route if you prefer (and definitely recommended if a rainy wet day!)

Highly recommend if you're not afraid of heights. The Beehive trail had awesome views the whole way up.

Busy trail but worth it.

Beautiful trail. Starts hard and gets easier as you go. Beehive is legit climbing up rocks so nobody with a fear of heights should do it. But it's not particularly arduous and my 60 year old parents were both able to do it. Highly recommend.

The haul up the Beehive is tough as advertised but over relatively quickly. Great views from the top of both peaks. Would get a higher rating but we were basically walking in a line half the time
