Nice little hike. Nice views and some opportunity for scrambling before the end of the trail. Moderately crowded on nice weekend days. Took about 2 hours up and back.

Beautiful hike, loose rocks and very rocky on the last incline. Beautiful view on the way up, and once you reach the top. Enjoyed this hike!

Hike starts on the opposite side of skyline drive from the parking lot. Loose rocks on the incline. View from summit is very nice, even on an overcast day. My father and I enjoyed this hike a lot!
