Beautiful view from the summit. In the winter the path wasn't marked as clearly so I took a wrong turn or two based on footprints. But I loved it. Bring some peanuts to feed the chipmunks at the top!

It is a relatively easy hike, 1.5 hours up and 1 hour down. The rock formation is interesting to look at. Great place for rock climbing. The view from the top is nice.

Excellent hiking spot with some bouldering spots. Did the whole climb with two kids, 5 and 6 y.o. and they really enjoyed it.
