This was a steep climb, but the views were totally worth it. My dog enjoyed it too.

good workout to a great 360° view from the top

a bit of a strenuous hike, but not bad. it's all uphill. the views at the summit is totally worth it!!

I've trekked this trail almost 5 times, and each one is different and better than the last. It's breathtaking and ever changing. The trail itself is fairly easy, until the end which becomes pretty steep. So be prepared. Definitely a great choice for dogs and children!

Beautiful hike, perfect for testing your gear. Very secluded and private. The lake was full of newts and fish, but access to the lake was limited. The water is warm and good for a swim. The only people we saw were a couple groups of day users who drove to a closer entrance for a short walk in. No one else on the actual hiking trail.

Great hike, although it is steep so be aware of that when tackling this. once you reach the top the views are amazing and worth the hour hike with friends.
