Nice hike. It was foggy today, so the view was not as dramatic...but we got there early and had the place to ourselves. I can’t imagine some of the narrow path areas on a busy day. Thanks for the earlier review explaining where the trailhead actually starts. I’m 64yrs old and not in prime shape...some of the rock steps were a challenge. We started at Point Park and got back to the road via Sunset Rock and walked the neighborhood back to our car...it was really lovely.

HikingGreat!

Point Park parking is free as long as you drive pass the paid parking into the back parking lot. Otherwise parking is $10. The restrooms are warm and clean. The gift shops are nice, and the workers are very helpful. The park is $10 per person to enter which is pretty expensive. The trail is accessed after you walk across the park to the Ochs Museum. There arent any signs to tell you this until you get to the museum. The trail is clear, beautiful and relatively easy. The are a few spots to climb over rocks, and the climb up to Sunset Rock is moderate. Watch for ice on rocks in the winter. The view is beautiful and worth the 1.1 mile hike from Point Park. Wear hiking shoes or waterproof shoes. the walk is rugged and wet in some places. Bring a camera and binoculars. You'll want to take beautiful photos and look at the city from the top.

Needs to be pointed out if you start at Point Park, you must pay $10 per person to enter the NP. Good stretch of the legs type of hike. Nothing strenuous and the views are breathtaking. Watch for roots or rocks hidden in rocks. Saw a lady trip over a protruding root she couldn’t see. Had she fell in some of the rocky areas, very possible broken bones.

The rocks bad this hike. It’s pretty easy hike except for a few sections. The rock steps are slippery when damp. Cuidadoso! We start at Lookout and end at Point Park. No cost through the Park and then walked back to parking via Brow Rd.

One of my local favorites - and much easier trekking Bluff View than taking the Upper Truck Trail to Sunset (that last mile hurts). I enjoy both routes, but sometimes I don’t want to work as hard. View is amazing. My go-to for when guests are in town.

Beautiful views. Be warned that parts of it are very tricky and steep. I can see why its rated "easy" but brief parts are "moderate."

For first time hiking... this trail may catch you off guard. It’s not “hard” but there are some steep climbs and narrow trails with large cliffs. The views are beautiful! Trail was relatively easy to follow but we did get off slightly. You will realize you’re off the trail very quickly though. Would definitely recommend!

Rugged in some areas but view from Sunset Rock worth the climb. Beautiful hike, not recommended for beginner hikers.
