The trail is rocky but is nice. Well maintained but can be slippery after rain. Nice view at the top.

I much prefer this route over the other branches of the trail. Decent uphill experience with a beautiful lake and river that becomes a waterfall during wet days. The view at The Pinnacle is perfect and the cave is worth exploring (and climbing out of) as well.

Take the Pulpit Rock route if you can, harder but much better and more rewarding
