  • This is a great hike...about 2miles of rock climbing at the top which makes this challenging. The view from the top is breathtaking. Recommend doing it in fall when the temperatures are cooler and leaves are changing colors.
  • One of the best hikes in this area and therefore has become crowded. Arrive early as in before 0700 to beat the crowds on the weekends. Bring water and fuel packed snacks. Allow 6 hours or longer to take in the vistas.
