Good hike but don't expect peace and quiet up at the top.

As previously stated, this hike feels a bit longer than it's distance. Mostly rocky, descending it a bit tough on the knees and ankles. however, it's a fun hike, would definitely do again (hopefully with views not smothered by fog). wear sunscreen!

this was the hardest hike I've ever done. it is very steep, and gruelling. the ground is uneven, and you have no place to rest. it is all uphill, even the "flat" parts are very difficult.
there are nearly no views, it is crowded with many hikers. I did not see children on the trails.
the top had amazing views, but was crowded with tourists who drove to the top.

One of the best hikes in the park! We took just over an hour to get up to the top, made the views along the way and at the top that much sweeter.

Views at top are panoramic and spectacular. We are in our mid 60's. With hiking boots and a pair of trek poles, this was still strenuous and took over 2.5 hours to climb up and almost as much descending because it is so steep. There is some outright climbing, walking on rocks across water, and lots of walking on slabs of uneven rock. But at the top there is a paved semi circular walk that gives 270 degree panoramic views of the coastline. There is also a store with snacks, rest rooms, filtered water fill station.
