The views are amazing, and the gondolla makes the views more accessible than they would be on foot. However, anyone considering this hike needs to know that the immediate environs are just ugly, as the entire "trail" is within the ski resort. You are either hiking up ski slopes - scarred, gravelly hillsides with snow making equipment looming like streetlights - or you're walking a gravelly fire road wide enough for two trucks to pass. Each viewpoint has a ski lift terminal or some other building impeding the view.
The views are amazing, but there are better ways to get to them around the canyon.
