Yes, we needed to see if the surgery I had would allow me to enjoy hiking again and I say YES, indeed! This is coming from the perspective of an older couple (60-70 yrs old) who enjoy the outdoors. Others have remarked about it’s relative...More

The initial portion of the hike was a steep climb, but the switchbacks made it relatively easy and we were rewarded with wildflowers, stunning views of the Sierras and the panoramas from the rock itself.
