This was a great hike that wasn't extremely hard. Started on a gravel path, that led to a dirt path, that led to a winding path that was almost straight up! We got to the top and it was beautiful!

I honestly wasn't expecting such an awesome view after only a 2.5 mile hike. It was difficult but so worth it! Kind of cold at the top due to wind so bring a jacket.

We really enjoyed this walk. It's a steep but pleasant walk. The view is amazing and after the lookout you even can go further one if you like.
