Need to Know

You should be an experienced climber/runner. This is difficult for beginners due to the large areas of rock only climbing with little dirt. The views are spectacular and if you are older and/or novice climber you can do it with help!

Description

Three different overlooks along the way make for a great run. On the way up, it's going to be steep starting from the beginning and will remain that way for about 2/3 of the run. There is some scrambling and one part near the middle that you have to do some minor climbing. Once at the top, you can enjoy the views as well as continue on to the State Park system. This trail is pretty popular with lots of runners in the summer as it is located in a generally pretty well-known place.
