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!

Really steep for the first mile but after it is amazing -- excellent hike to see all the leaves changing. We were up there from 3-5 in the afternoon and it was pretty busy.

I like this one because you re walking along the mountain, which is rare!

Great hike...especially right now with the fall colors. You do gain all 1100 feet in the first mile, but then it is flat flat flat and the view at the end is worth it...especially at sunset!

This was a fun fall hike. Really pretty fall colors and great views. if you are out of shape, like me, the first mile is a nightmare. after that it's easy. There are alot of of mine tailing and pretty awesome quartz crystals along the route.

Put in some work at the beginning and then it's smooth sailing and the views are incredible.

Start early so the first uphill mile is in the shade. Great views!
