Park Office was closed when I attended, and the bathrooms at the picnic area were not the greatest, but the hike was awesome and there are excellent views from the top.

A great hike, decent incline, a little steep in parts. Gorgeous views at the top. Can't wait to do it again.

Great for a short hike with the dog. It's an easy hike on a well maintained trail but definitely will bring your heart rate up a notch due to the slope.
