Amazing view at the top. Panoramic views of nearby mountains & lakes. Parking lot was overflowing but plenty of parking along main highway. Trails were very well marked. Took blue trail up, which became trickier about half way up, requiring hands in spots. Little kids & dogs may need boosts up some rocks/boulders. Took orange trail down which seemed to have less bouldering than blue trail. The rocks/boulders up top could definitely be slippery in rain which would totally change the experience. I went on a beautiful day and had a truly great hike! I

View at the top is gorgeous! Trail was a little rough, steep, rocky.

Blue - yellow- blue loop, about 5 miles. Steep and a bit slippery in places, even on a dry day. Appropriately rated moderate, great fun. Outstanding views. Plenty of places to lunch and enjoy. 3 hours with generous breaks.
