A great little hike with the most amazing views - be sure to stop down at the Mercantile when you are done for coffee. A bit steep to start and some slippery areas but nothing too crazy and worth the view at the top!

This trail should take about 30-45 minutes depending on how long you want to enjoy the view. We did the upper trail loop, tough when heading all the way to the top but the rest of it was fairly easy.

The trail head is well marked but the trail is quiet with the best view of Trinity. Very quiet. Do the connecting trails as well. Moderate steepness.

Hi - It takes about 20 minutes or so. Some sections are a little steep, but otherwise a very pleasant walk. There's parking on the street at the foot of the trail.
