  • This is not too difficult of a hike, but does have some elevation--guessing 200-300 ft gain. But it is well worth if for views that seem to stretch forever.

  • The view from the top is great and worth the hike up. It took us about an hour total round trip. Nothing too technical on the trail. We did this hike while we waited for the cave tour.
