Gorgeous, strenuous hike - limited water sources on trail, so be prepared.

Great hike. It's marked as easy on this app, however it's definitely not easy. It's 5.8 miles out and back. Steep at times but couple level areas. Brought my dog (mixed breed terrier 25lbs) and he made it, but not sure how. Some boulders were steep and high. Peak was 360° views! Also make sure you check out The Cave on the way up.
