    The hike was exactly how it had been described in the trail guide! There was no way our group would have been able to find the trail as easily without the guide. We completed the 5 mile round trip hike in just under 3 hours and none of us are experienced hikers. We thought the trail was difficult due to the steep slope almost the entire way, but the views at the top are MORE than worth the hike!!! I would make sure you take a jacket or long sleeves for up at the lookout.

    Terrific scenery, excellent directions! Because of heat, would suggest carry LOTS of water and consider travel in fall (spring travel probably involves a lot of snow and mud). Encountered more bicyclists than SUV's. Would suggest travel with vehicle with more ground clearance than a Subaru wagon. Well worth the trip!
