Planned to do Angel but on local advice we chose to hike to Observation Point and it was Magnificent. Challenging so bring plenty of water (and a snack top enjoy at the top) and savor the victory.

This hike is around 8 miles RT and beautiful, exhilarating, exhausting, and amazing. The scenery is amazing but the switchbacks felt like they would never end. Being a little fearful of heights I almost felt like giving up because of the switchbacks and the ledge....More

The hike is reasonably strenuous and most of the trail is paved. The views along the way are pretty but the truly rewarding view comes at the end where you get a panoramic view of the valley.

We did this as our first hike of a week-long trip. Despite the elevation gain of about 2200 feet and duration (8 miles round trip) this turned out to be an excellent first hike. The trail is well maintained and remarkably mostly paved which makes...More

The hike is challenging but so doable and worth it. I don’t work out or hike regularly and I was able to finish the hike within 4.5 hours. The first mile is pretty difficult and steep with quite a few switchbacks. The second mile is...More
