Preparation for this trail: StairMaster!
This trailhead was easy to find. Waze took us right to the parking area, off of Skyline Drive. Saying this hike is uphill is an understatement, but the view at the top is amazing and quite a reward. If you are into geocaching, there is a 3/3 about half way up the trail. We found it as a reward on the way down.
We completed the mile up and back route - 1 hour up, and 40 minutes down, for us.
Take water. Don't go on the trail after a rain, for the sake of the trail and you. Trail is moderately traveled by the fit and those working on it.
