The first half of the Hike is very doable for most hikers and the views from there are amazing. Don’t be put off by the moderate difficulty rating.

I would say this hike is very good, but not great. It is very easy, quick. You could get some great photos here. I believe you can keep climbing up the ridge, but that looked difficult. It costs $5 to park at this location.
Moderate to difficult short hike, but provided great views! It was our first hike of the trip and it was probably our favorite!
0.5 mile up with a 700ft incline. The result was well worth the effort. Even if you chicken out 1/2 way up the exercise and views are incredible.
