Not a hike for the unfit as it's a little steep but once you get there it's so worth doing for the view of Nelson.

A steep hike, but once you are there, the view of Nelson is great. Be sure to take your camera for some scenic shots.

I have a friend who is a seasoned hiker and she can do it in 20-30 min ea way. It took me an hr ea way. The trail is steep and there are a number of switchbacks. It is worth it for the view.
