Favorite Hikes

Moderate , challenging hike. Not a walk in the park. Fantastic, awesome views and hiking experience for those who venture up. Very do-able but be prepared for a workout. Hiking time can vary from short 1 hour loop to 7 hour hike depending on the choice of trails and desired distance . Moderate to challenging depending on the weather, but definitely do-able for folks that are healthy and motivated. Hike has some rock scrambling, especially the 1st segment , about 20 minutes of scrambling up to the flag. Strongly recommend using hands on rocks. Also gives you additional upper body and core workout if you scramble up rocks on feet and hands. Think Spiderman or SpiderWoman :) . Please make sure to bring at least 2 liters of water and appropriate hiking shoes if possible. Also dress appropriately for weather and light layers is best clothing for hiking. Try to avoid wearing cotton during cold weather hikes. For winter hiking , bring a pair of spikes, crampons. Night Lights \ head lamps for late day hikes to ensure safe exits under darkness
