Fun hike. Took us 60 minutes on the dot. Lots of rock formations, so wear well tread shoes. Saw a rattle, to be expected. The top is a good hang out spot with lots of areas to relax, have a snack, look at views. Many will bring water and leave it up at the top for dogs. There are bathrooms at the trailhead and a very small parking lot. You can find a spot on the road.

Its nice hike! Good for beginners!

is moderate for beginners.. but is a cool place to start... we did around 88 minutes total..

the good thing about this place is if you go around June the sun is behind the mountain so you can go just after sunrise and you get shade.

Nice hike

This is my go-to short but intense hike! 1.5 miles of steep switchbacks all the way up. You'll be in the sun so bring water! Always crowded, so remember proper hiking etiquette :)
