Super fun hike! A little challenging in the beginning but it gets easier as you go, perfect for families!

Great views! Initial climb not as bad as expected, leads to some amazing forest views and rock structures.

Lots of rocks, lots of views. Pretty stuff

We didn't see a soul on the trail until we were half way down. Great hike!

Great hike with a good elevation climb. View at the top is amazing but pay attention what path you came from. The trail leads to like a 6 point junction of trails, roads and mountain bike path, very easy to get turned around.

Have fun the 1st 1/2 mile, better be in shape. The view is worth it and if you can do a little bouldering then way worth it.

The first part of the trail is a good workout, the view is awesome at Castle Rock and the hike further is a great look at our local forest.

Great hike for families. Beautiful views at the top.

Excellent, well marked trail. Spectacular views. It was a little more crowded than I care for and there were a fair number of mountain bikes that required keeping an eye behind you as well as in front. All in all, a great hike.

Absolutely stunning views!
