Amazing hike with an awesome cave tour at the end. The hike itself is a thigh burner but not difficult. Great views and mostly shaded. The cave tour was so cool and our guide was awesome. It does have a quite steady elevation gain but so worth it. Make sure you purchase tickets before hand as they sell out.

Paved trail all the way to the top. Definitely consider this a moderate based on the elevation change on the way up. Cave is cold but tolerable if you forget a sweatshirt. Overall Id do it again as I enjoyed seeing the formations inside the cave and great views along the trail.

Steep paved trail with amazing views along the way. I had more difficulty on the way down because of the incline. There is lots of shade and places to rest. The rangers recommend carrying at least 32oz of water per person on the hike.

Pretty fun! Will need a lot of breaks with little kids. (We took our 5 year old boys!)

Very steep incline all the way up. You go up 1000+feet on your way to the caves. Fantastic views, bring a camelback and sweater if you plan on entering the caves or if you go later in the day. The pathway is paved and you have to really keep moving in some spots due to rockfall. Gorgeous views and interesting rock formations. The drive up is beautiful too. I suggest going around 5pm, youll have cooler temps and may see more beautiful lighting on the rocks! Worth the time :)
