Amazing trail! I would highly recommend. The views are amazing and the elevation is worth it. The trail is extremely well-kept and well marked.

First to Review

We visited this trail with our kiddos. Very fun place! I will say watch out for a rocky area you have to climb up to continue on the trail about half way in. We weren’t expecting it- it was easy enough to get over- but a little concerning when you first see it!
