It was a long bumpy drive to get to the end of the road where you leave your car outside the complex. You walk around the complex fence to get to the trail head. The hike itself is about 20 minutes to get to the...More

This is a short hike although a bit steep for some, but well worth the gorgeous view. You can do the whole hike and enjoy some time at the top in just 2-3 hours. Finding where to start is a little tricky and it seems...More
