A little slick because it has been raining but an overall great hike. Lots of stairs, so if you have bad knees I would recommend some knee braces. Otherwise, a short hike with a beautiful view! (I had my 2 dogs with me and they handled it with no problems)

Fun trail, lots of rocks and steep. 9 yo got too nervous with the rocks and trail edge towards the end to continue. 10 yo was blazing ahead and was bummed we didn't finish. Adventure!

It's a short hike that leads to a beautiful view of the water basin. I was the only one on the trail when I went Friday morning. The stone steps for the climb can be a bit of a workout and the path can become narrow at points, but totally worth it.

Fairly easy, yet interesting hike. The vista is breathtaking and awesomely panoramic. It is heavily trafficked on a Saturday early afternoon.

An extremely awesome payoff for a short distance and smooth elevation change.
