  • Pretty easy hike, even with kids. The views from the top are AMAZING and well worth it. Definitely use some bug spray.

If you hike the loop I suggest the short (and steeper) way up and longer way down. Trail is in good shape but had loose dirt on a dry July day so can be a little slippery if you go down the steeper way.
