Took a birthday hike it the top, what a view ! I really recommend this hike, rate it a moderate trail. Shady and sunny exposed sections, but the views...on a clear day you can see for miles up and down river. Once you make it to the top, sit, enjoy, watch the red tail hawks circling below you. Drawback is that it's popular and weekends can be crowded, suggest a weekday if you can. Enjoy.
