bje said: This is a fun day hike that can take you to may different areas or provide a short out and back hike, with a little bit of a challenge on some steep steps and one slick rock area where you can see people have made another trail further away from the ledge in the grass and trees to avoid walking on slanting rock so close to the edge. There are a few places to stop and sit atop a rocky outcrop for a picnic. It provides a good view of the valley below and when the weather is clear, you can see several surrounding mountains. There is a lot of grass or rhododendron bushes and some blackberry vines, so a variety of plant life, but very little animal life. We saw two birds on the entire hike and no insects, reptile or mammals. It is a bit different from straight up and down mountain climbs and kind of fun going from open meadowland into a deep dark forested area and back out in the open again. Moderate trail with good views.
