Short, steep hike with pockets of great views at the top. Get out to hike this trail!

This hike starts out, and ends fairly steep, with a nice gradual grade in the middle. The view at the ledges was nice though access is limited due to nesting falcons.

Nice hike - I ended up here on accident because in my effort to reach the trailhead for smarts mountain - I was greeted with a road closed sign due to mud. So I hiked this instead on Easter Sunday since it was there for the hiking. Relatively easy. It didn’t feel to me anything like 1.7 miles. Great view at the ledge.

hike was good. some spots a little steep. only 2 view points, thought there'd be another one on the top but wasn't. Still recommend!

Good short hike and clearly marked. Hike slightly more difficult than expected but still a good beginner trail.

I've hiked this from February to November, and it's always beautiful. Bring crampons in the winter; the trails get icy.
