Great views along the way and at the end of this hike. Great work out also. This is a very strenuous hike. It is equivelant to a 1 hour stair master workout. There are plenty of places to rest though and look at the great views that this hike has to offer. This is also a geocacher friendly hike.

Great trail and area. Really enjoyed the sunset and view at the top. Was about 3.5 miles total up and back and walking around at the top.

Very challenging, but worth the effort! Wonderful views, especially if you continue on to the "Standing Stone Trail".

Great workout. We did the 9 mile out and back; last 2 vistas not necessarily worth the extra 2.4 miles but otherwise a great outdoors way to spend the day.

Very fun experience! First lookout point is better than the final lookout point.
