My app turned off partway through the hike. I did a total of 8.2 miles. If you stop at the marker at the very top I think it would still be about 5.5. If you continue on there is some amazing rainforest on the back side.

Gorgeous hike. Loved the views. It was a bit smokey and overcast but we enjoyed it just the same. Took our three kids up the trail (16, 13, 12) and they did great. Nice few hours out exploring with the fam.

Amazing hike! There's a lower lookout for people not wanting to go all the way to the top. We went all the way up and it was amazing. Most hikes you can only see the view from the top, but this one you could see the view from most of the hike. Will do it again!
