  • Amazing! We chose to take tackle the steps first and walk down the hill. The whole experience took about an hour. It's a lot of fun with beautiful views and great spots of pics along your journey. Although, make sure to put your phone away to enjoy it! They also have an emergency phone at the top if you need it. Dogs are allowed, I saw both leashed and unleashed.
  • Really good place for a hike. Pros: - Great views of the city and clean air. - You can do some mini rock-climbing but not necessary. - Great for beginners but if you do the whole portion it can be on the intermediate level. Cons: - Parking is not always easy and you're supposed to move your car after "sunset" which is very unclear.
