Nice trail. Easy hike, only tough part is the hike up to the pinnacle. One thing to note, was that the trail markers do not match the map. Therefore at times, knowing where you are/where you were going was not clear.

Well marked and not too difficult until the peak. Nice slow incline up and down. Can be done in under 1.5 hours.

Hiked 1/23/21: Very, very crowded trail, to the point of being unenjoyable. Very noisy. Trash all along the way, tried packing in some but realized I needed a garbage bag. The trail itself is a beginner trail, and the views are mediocre the top, if you're able to see around the mass of people. Can not recommend this hike when there are so many other hikes within driving distance that are so much better. Very disappointing.

Well marked trail but AllTrails needs to update map. The trail is blocked about one mile in and you take a lower parallel trail. Park opens at 8am and parking lot was full when I finished hike at 9:20.
