“Incredible views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

We visited the second week in March, when the road was still closed. The road was fine for walking, about 75% bare pavement and 25% thin corn snow. The several hundred steps up the rock were almost completely clear of snow. Beautiful view of the valley in one direction, and the snow-covered Sierras in the other.

“Great Hike and Marvelous Photography”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Ideally come early in the morning, or like I did, mid to late afternoon. The light does some magical things along the trail, and you will soon find yourself snapping photos of the same scene, though looking completely different just a few minutes apart, as the light dances across the horizon, casting long tree shadows as it traverses the breathtaking scene.

The hike isn't too bad at all, though you are at some altitude, so be mindful that you may feel it a bit. Rustic and primitive, but well marked and maintained trails, should offer you reasonable comfort and safety. Definitely a must do!

“Spectacular, truly 5 star”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

A mile high!
But you can park ten minutes from the top. Loved it. Still looked great even when so cloudy we could not see any ground.
An absolute must. Do it!

“Takes your breath away”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

This spectacular outcropping hangs over the Central Valley like a stone sentinel, affording forever views. Be in shape aerobically though, as the couple of hundred feet up a steep path and stairs can seem like a mile at that elevation. Once on top, ejoy seeing from the Sierra Crest to the valley below. Wonderful!

“gotta see it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

been here a few times. the view is awesome and worth the short climb. This is the best place to view the Great Western Divide. While in the area be sure to see Crystal Caves.
