The rock climbing makes this a moderate hike. Best to wear good shoes. Amazing views, beautiful colors. About a mile up.

This is a straight up rock climb. You spend much time on all fours. Always watching your step, not appreciating scenery. Also, too crowded while I was there. There were little ones and pets that maybe should not have been on the hike. I say this only because there is much of the hike that is one lane/one way narrow. The power hikers and rock climbers that do belong on this hike make it worse because there is no fast lane. Most everyone is polite or waits for other hikers in the narrow spots but if even just a few don’t wait their turn and try to pass or are right on your butt in all four situation it can be uncomfortable, dangerous, or for me, just not relaxing nor invigorating.

Views were so beautiful,
It was busy during spring break so it was hard to find a place to park.
Worth the visit to see the church and stunning views of the valley below.

I am an avid hiker but afraid of heights, and not necessarily comfortable with rock scrambling. We went early (critical if you want parking! When we left close to 11, the police were giving out tickets to those parked on the road) and it was busy but not overcrowded. My kids (7, 11, and 13) had no problems at all with any of the scrambling. It's a very short hike. I was uncomfortable with some of the climbing (thinking more of how I was going to get down!) but I pushed through and it was beautiful at the top. Definitely worth a visit!

It's a quick hike but challenging. You should definitely try to be at the top to watch the sun go down. The views are amazing.
