Great hike, though I'd call it an intermediate following the regular trail— only if one takes the south trail loop (as shown in map) does it become a difficult trail, with lots of seriously fun but occasionally treacherous rock scrambling. Great views at certain spots, there's a spring about one mile from the trailhead. Overall, a pretty decent day hike, even in late November.

Solid hike with my dog. Beautiful weather and some nice views. Just a few other hikers on the trail. Peaceful.

First 1/2 mile is steady uphill but well worth it! Lots of snakes today (6 that we laid eyes on) but the views were spectacular! Trails are exceptionally well maintained and marked. Huge thank you to those who recently weed whacked the trails!

A tough uphill for the first mile or so but the North Trail views were spectacular and so worth the climb. Definitely going back in a few weeks.
