Definitely worth the hike. Should be rated as moderate because even though the trail is well maintained, it's a rigorous walk to the observation deck.

Great trail but I would consider it moderate due to the elevation changes.

if you're climbing the rocks up top, make sure you have decent tread on your shoes.

i had none, but i made it look casual. 'till i almost dropped.

Pretty easy for an uphill. Switchbacks make it easier as far as the incline. Scattered benches along to route if you need a breather. Walked up, jogged down as I saw a few others did also.

Great short hike - make sure to stay on the trail and help avoid erosion! You can go past the observation deck, just be careful! It's all incline until the top, but several switchbacks help prevent tiredness. Happy Hiking!

Cleared and great path, with several switchbacks, up to the overlook platform. Scrambling up to the top, but breathtaking views once you are at the top.

Nice in and out. Hike in is uphill all the way. Hike marked easy due to trail condition. Climb can be tough if not used to hiking up. Great views at the top. U can go further than observation tower, and its worth it.

Beautiful view once you make it up all of the switchbacks and stairs. I would also rate the trail as moderate because of the continuous incline. Worth the trip!
