We did this walk with with a 4 and 6 year old and they made it to the top no problem. It's a beautiful walk thru the trees but reasonably steep, well worth the views at the top

We always like to get to the highest point of where we are staying as it gives such a good perspective. Plus the exercise!

We decided to take an early morning walk and it was truly refreshing and we were rewarded with a superb good view of the beautiful mountains. Trail was easy to trek too.

Well worth the walk! It's a bit steep in spots, with some ice patches in the early morning. Subbing scenery

We took our 3 teenagers up this walk they loved the view and had a great time. Recommend to take water with you. There is a viewing platform at the top great place to take photos. Can be muddy and slippery when it has rained....More
