  • The hike to the top was worth the amazing view. It is breathtaking. The hike is listed as "easiest" but it could be a challange for some who just enjoy walking on flat surfaces.

  • This hike is ~1.25 miles roundtrip and gains ~300 feet of elevation. You’ll be climbing up and around all sorts of boulders as you make your way to the summit. The trail is well marked with blue...

  • Probably the most fun 1.2 mile trail I've done. A short but intense scramble to the top and the 360 views was awesome. A couple parts are a little sketchy but really not a problem.
  • The rock scramble was awesome! It was pretty dangerous, but young children could do it with adult supervision. The views were amazing!
