This was STRAIGHT UP most of the way lol a tad brutal, and it turns out you can actually drive up to the top... but earning it was much more exiting.

Great trail, very well marked. Several sets of "stairs" helped. Super view from the top.

Un camino corto e inclinado que vale la pena por la vista al echo lake que tiene este lugar..

The beginning of this route would have been very confusing without gps otherwise it’s a short yet challenging hike for a beginner like me

Trail at the bottom can be confusing at times as there are multiple trails that run parallel and intersect. Once you get on the trail going up hill it does become steep and there’s some scrambling up to the view. Amazing view at the top that is also a spot for rock climbing. There’s a pit bathroom at the top by the parking lot.

We really enjoyed this trail. It was not a long hike for a great view, but definitely had some really challenging parts, for us. After steep parts it levels off for nice cool down areas.

Took the yellow trail up to Cathedral Ledge. Nice hike with a couple rocky scrambles - one about .6miles in and an easier one as you approach the top. Took the road down which made it much easier!

We took the paved road up and loved the views at the top! Bring bug spray!

My boyfriend and I did this hike when it was about 85 degrees out, and we’re not experienced hikers. Took us about an hour to get to the top due to frequent stops, but the views are amazing! On the way down we used the gated road. Honestly a little hard on the knees, as it’s pretty steep most of the way. Might even be slightly easier to take the trail back down. Amazing hike/area nonetheless.

A good hike. A bit buggy in the beginning and a little steep at times, but I definitely recommend it! My dog enjoyed it as well!

nice, short hike. road to the vista was cllseso i climbed up the traild and walked back down along the closed road. The 180° view is excellent and expansive. Early-late afternoon would be the best time as the main view is north and west. In the lower parts of the trail there were an unbearable amount of mosquitos.
