We hiked the 1/3 of a mile out to see Pulpit rock. It was worth the hike. The hardest part is the small hike back up the hill to the parking area. If you have problems hiking up and down trails with rocks and roots...More

The hike isn't so hard, there were people even running. The view is amazing. During weekend there are a lot of people. Definitely worth to go there.
