Traveled through this area mostly by car, as I am a senior citizen w/ arthritis. Did get out and stretch a bit and the trail was smooth, and clean as a whistle. Beautiful views. more »
This place is awesome in every way. I was very impressed with these majestic rocks and wish it would have been warmer. 23 degrees and wind made for a cold and short visit. more »
Beautiful views but trails were much more strenuous than some of the others we went on during our trip. That being said, it is less crowded than other mountains we hiked. I would recommend going early because we went later in the day and the sun started to set quick. Ended up having to hike down with the flashlight on our phones and we weren't the most experienced hikers.
Amazing trails and places to go and visit. Wear a Hat and Sunscreen! Great place to visit!!
