Great hike. Might be challenging for new hikers due to the incline but the view at the top is spectacular.
Nice little trail. Did this one in November. Very still, quiet and calm
Short hike - when you reach the final right turn to go up for the last bit of the hike, look left and check out the large rock scramble area first. You also have an opportunity for a second great view there and some fun. Good if you want to be up and back in under 1.5 hours. Top view is slightly anticlimactic.
Nice short hike, view at the summit was little disappointed.
With a 9 and 7 yo. Just enough for them. Fairly easy hike. Awesome views.
Great view and breeze. Definitely worth adding to your list!
