Good hike it is pretty steady incline with a unique rock formation up top. Parts of the trail are very rocky and wet. It is very popular trail and can be closed sometime due to the trail being rebuilt. Good short hike

Great trail! However, it was ice for about a quarter mile as it had snowed two days prior. My two boys, 9 and 11 hiked all the way up with me , no problem. It was too windy to climb up the rock face, but the views were incredible anyway. Highly recommended!

Such a fun hike! I went with several friends, few who are novice hikers and they did fine. It is difficult at times, but because it is not very long it is doable. The final views are breathtaking! Just be cautious at the end on the climbs and aware of your surroundings (including other hikers). Definitely recommend this hike, especially on a beautiful day!!!

Pretty tough going up but well worth it. Pack good climbing shoes to get to the top. Great hike.

Amazing 360 views, loved that we had to rock climb to the top but was sore next day! Not suitable for small children and trail is currently closed on weekdays for maintenance.
