This was a great hike. We had beginner to experienced hikers and 4 children ages 6-8. We hiked in a mile with many great places to stop and rest. I would highly recommend starting early in the morning we started around 8 am also wear some good hiking shoes or boots . The terrain had a lot of gravel , sand and large rocks .

This was our first hike in the area and led to a beautiful view overlooking the city! The kids loved it and just had one incident with a cactus! Rocky and lots of gravel so wear sturdy shoes so you don’t slip. We got off trial and added a couple peaks to the trek and it was a lot of fun!

So much fun! Lots of scrambling over boulders. My 5 year old loved it. A little more tricky for my husband carrying our 2 year old in the pack.

Veryyy busy. Had to pull off multiple times to let others pass. Would not recommend bringing your dogs.

Quite a hike. Bit of everything and lots of rock climbing. I’m a bit older and needed a hand from my son to manage a couple of the bigger rocks. Made it to the top and quite a view. Was busy, shame about the need by some to add the graffiti.

Intense climb with some boulder scrambling. Tough when you have a dog on leash, and there were a couple spots they had to be lifted over, but a great workout close to town.

Well marked trail. The boulders and rocks were a fun challenge for me and my 3 kids (7, 9, 11).

Enjoyed the trail and sunset views at the look out. Was a nice little workout climbing over and on the rocks. Was about 2.5 miles total for me. Short and sweet.
