Our first time hiking this trail and we loved it! The views along the trail are almost as good as the view at the end. We carried our 18-month old in a carrier and it took us a little over 2 hours with a stop to eat something at the top.

Watch out for mountain bikers and runners that quickly approach because the trail gets narrow. Also, I think we heard a rattlesnake, but didn't actually see it.

We will hike this again soon!

went with our two kids and the view was so worth it. Gradually going up Views of the nature is beautiful, literally stopping every 15 min just to take pictures. Breathtaking views of the mountains as well!
