I did the 3 mile loop little steep but beautiful , I carried a pack full of water and my little girl up and down , she went from weighing 17 at start to about 117 by trails end. Awesome hike though.

Steep ascent to start out with but the views were totally worth it. Relaxing creek side trail on the backend of the 3 miles.
