This is a great walk but is challenging - it does have a fair amount of what the locals call "bouldering" which involves some fairly strenuous climbs and ropes. The first peak is purportedly the highest and the last portion is pretty tough, certainly not for the faint hearted. Only one of our party continued on and the second peak... More

Parking is before the bridge outside the golf course. Then just follow the road to the trail head. About half mile past the guard shack and there is a sign to mark the trail. The hike immediately starts on an incline. This incline gradually gets steeper as you go higher. There's rocks, roots and is a little bit muddy. If... More

Be prepared to a really hard climb right up the mountain, letting no traverses but a steep straignt elevation. Start early (7 am) to avoid heat and crowds of people struggling through the trail. Take a lot of water or isotoner - you'll be sweating as hell! In the end you'll be rewarded with breathtaking views!!! Don't go if you're... More

The view from the first peak was beautiful!! I did all 3 but there's no need unless you just want the challenge. Peak 2 & 3 look harder than they are but not for the faint hearted.

At least hat's what the travel guides and hiking books say! I wouldn't advise this to be your first hike if you don't keep in shape or exercise regularly. The name of the hike says it all...three peaks. I'll admit, I only made it to the second, which is the highest of all three, because I was running out of... More

There's a small parking lot nearby where you can park however, this area fills up quick on weekends. The trail to the first peak is easy and gives you a great view of the surrounding area. The second peak is also easily accessible from here. Descending the second peak is where things get more difficult. It's steep descent with a... More

I was very nervous to do this hike after reading all the reviews on it! But in the end I decided that I could make my own decisions and would just stop when I felt unsafe. Boy am I glad I made that decision. What a hike! I only did the first peak - the reviews on the 2nd &... More

If you aren't an advanced hiker, it's okay. It's more mind over matter. Not something I would bring kids to. As far as safety is concerned, you should expect to climb a lot of ropes up and down steep cliffs. I'm not joking. You kind of feel like you're rock climbing at some points. That being said, the view is... More

I should start by saying that this hike is not for beginners . . . but you also don't need to be an expert. This hike is challenging, and will probably take the average hiker about 4 hours, depending on whether you choose to hit all three peaks. The challenge is part of the fun though. I can honestly say... More

Difficult but exciting hike, with fabulous view. The hike started off as a bit of a muddy trail, (after you park your car prior to the golf course, and walk up the paved road to the start of the trail), then you get to the narrow steep portion of the trail. My heart was going, and was a bit dismayed... More
