Trail shared by Sarah Clark

A great hike for many levels!

Family Friendly It’s short enough for kids to not get too tired, and exciting enough to keep them entertained.

Description

This trail was a great hike for an afternoon. Parking at the trailhead is pretty easy and there are restrooms and a small store.

The trail itself starts off very easy, and towards the end has several sets of rock stairs. There are plenty of places to take a break if necessary, and the views at the top are amazing! This is an out-and-back hike.
