My 11year old daughter says "this trail was awesome!" The 1 1/2 year old walked the first part but then had to go in the backpack once we started climbing. The exposure at the top is NOT toddler friendly. We found some treasures to take home after obtaining a permit from the friendly camp ground host. We will be coming back. Originally we we're planning for a quick trip but ended up spending all day exploring! Remember to bring the bear spray.

Beautiful hike

This was a nice hike with amazing views. It was a bit steep once you get to the top but not to bad. I was a bit on the nervous side as I had a toddler on my back but it was doable. I will be doing it again. oh and you do need a permit if you want to collect any rocks there.
