The peak provides 360 views. Great hike spoiled by sight and smell from a pot smelling e-cig toting mother of an infant and toddler.

Pretty scenery, wear shoes that give you great support for the ankles and you should be good. A great hike and recommend it to those that want to explore.

Great hike with beautiful views. I could have done without the religious service going on at the summit. 40+ people crowded in at the summit giving people the stink eye if that walk up to the summit is not cool. Are religious services allowed in National Parks?
