This is a really neat hike, it offers a great view and a fun stone stair path to explore! It was fall when we went on this hike, it proved to be a great time to take in the beauty of the city views.

There r many hikes you can take at the park. Most are gradual climbs. You can extend a hike by connecting to other hikes; but you are able to complete many in 45-75 minutes. Enjoy!
