A gorgeous hike. Definitely challenging (especially if you're not used to higher altitudes...which as a NY native I am not!) Parts of the trail are really narrow so be careful. The views overall were beautiful and the view from the top was totally epic! I definitely recommend. ☺️

Incredible hike. Took my son who started running and was poking fun that I couldn't keep up and was walking. "Settle down young bull, won't be long and I'll catch up!"
Fair amount of traffic on the hike but easy to step off and get around each other. Switchback trails make the hike doable for all ages and abilities...but it isn't easy by any measure.
Leave enough time to enjoy the views from the top. We were lucky enough to watch a helicopter come up the valley and land near the hike entrance below us. Enjoy!!

My favorite trail for trail running ever: Steep climb to top, Smooth downhill glide to bottom.

It was a great trail. Tread was fairly excellent most of the way. Couple cutoff trails need to be blocked a little better in some switchbacks to protect the resource but overall it was good. Went with friends and it was well worth the trip!!

It has narrow paths and for people not acclimated to higher elevations it may be a bit more difficult. Great hike!
