Steeeeeeeeeeep, stairs after stairs! What a fun trail.

I love hard uphill hiking so this was perfect for me. Very challenging but super fun to climb the ladders!

Though relatively short, this hike is steep and has a long stone staircase to the top. I've seen off leash dogs on this trail. In the summer, you can pick blueberries at the top and enjoy the beautiful view :)

Be prepared to climb! This trail was fun and worth the climb but there are a ton of steps! Rock steps of various heights, the 3 ladder sections on this hike a baby could do, this is not a hard hike just time consuming, took about an hour went up ladder and down door summit, once you think your don't climbing to the top you come to a steeper rock slick follow the cairns there helpful! The day we went was super foggy so we were glad they were there to help guide us in the right direction! Coming down was a bit harder due to it being wet and slick but very doable! Enjoy!
