Fast, fun hike with a nice view. Worth the climb. Took us, what felt like 20-25 mins.

Moderately challenging climb to the summit. Great view when you reach it

Best views in the park for the effort. A couple of steep grades where my dog needed help but other than that a doable climb. One of my favorites hikes in the notch.

Moderate for most of it, then steep and rocky at the very end. However, it is very short, and the views are great, especially considering the effort required.

My favorite go early am to find the trail head park across from cannon building when you park you’re facing an empty lot the trail head is across the lot slightly left at tree line HAPPY TRAILS
