This was a trail and view I was proud to have all to myself on an early Monday morning. This is an area well known for herds of people pollution, this is why I was amazed to have it all to myself! You can tell by the wore out areas on the amount of people that use this trail. I returned to the parking lot to see only one other car and another pulling in as I was stowing my gear!

Totally worth the steep climb to the top. Gorgeous views!!

Pretty difficult. Note that the summit is a fairly steep rock, so if you're a little scared of heights like I am you may not fully appreciate it.

Awesome short hike. It’s a small bye in for such an awesome view. Lots of traffic though

The summit offers great views! There are no switchbacks, so it’s steep. We hiked before sunrise and went a little off-trail by mistake.

I did this hike back in July and it was so hot. It was a pretty moderate climb but well worth it had lunch at the top.

The .8 mile trip up is NO JOKE! It was strenuous, but in a good way! The views at the top were well worth the pain! It was a beautiful Saturday when we visited and VERY busy both on the trail and on the rocks. We took the slow, long way back down. It was about 3 miles, way less crowded, and beautiful!! Overall, great day!
