Well kept trails, very pretty hike, I believe the trail name to actually be called central peak and we found the trail markings to be pretty confusing and not marked well. We always take a paper map and I use a couple apps to help navigate through trails. Also this specific trail head charges
$10 for parking, which is fine we just haven’t seen that at most other trail heads we’ve parked at.

the trail markings were really confusing and we ended up on a couple different trails that for sure wasn't this one. also, the trail isn't called what they named it on here, it's actually called central peak.

This is a SOFT as$ trail for SOFT as$ people. I was left without the squad for this one and was stuck with my lame boring family. I could've killed this trek in under 30min if it weren't for them slowing me down. To make matters worse, my family didn't even let me take beers for the trail:
Me: "Mom, can I bring some Mikes' for the hike?"
Mom: "No, son. This is a family event. That's ridiculous."
Me: "Mom, I'm in college. I DRINK."
It was to no avail. The hike sucked. There were breathtaking towering ferns and many lovely native flora, however. Overall rating: NOT LIT.
