It's a great hike for those who like some challenge. It's mostly all stairs - rails, that where left there. I am a slow poke when it comes to hikes, I like to look at the surroundings. Here I felt like I really had to keep my eye on the path because, like all hikes, it can be scary only because it's strait up and you don't want to miss a step. It took me 45 min at my slow pace. I've seen people run up and down several times - yup, not me. Totally worth it! It's better to bring a camel pack to carry your water because you want to have both hands free.
