“Spectacular”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

The ride up the mountain is relaxing and beautiful. The view from the top will take your breath away. Perfect for taking pictures, climbing on rocks, and enjoying the view. The line where the ocean his the sky is amazing. There are also restrooms and a gift shop at the top.

“Breathtaking experience!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

This has got to be one of the most special places for hikers of all kinda. Easy/Moderate/Advanced trails, just beautiful!!! Take your pick and go find yourself an isolated spot to take pics and realize just how tiny we are on this huge planet. Nature at it's best!

“Hiking the trails -- views are worth the effort!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

The trails are well marked, and well maintained. The views from the summit are awe-inspiring. Sand Beach is very clean, and has a life guard on duty. The drive offers plenty of scenery and photo opportunities. Great place to be if you love nature.

“Sunrise and then South Face climb”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

The sunrise was awesome. Longest day of the year and at 4:30 AM, every parking space was taken. Really beautiful and worth your while to get up early. 48degrees. Bring a jacket, sweatpants and a blanket.

South face climb starts by the campgrounds...about 3.7 miles each way. Once you're above the trees, great views and easy breeze to make it more palatable. Long way up, easy down. Not too aggressive... only one "iron run" (literally one) on the entire climb. Not for small children or elderly people going up... everyone can make it down. At worst, take a bus up and leave your car at the campgrounds.

Great views of particularly the southwest... once in the trees, look out you don't turn an ankle on the tree roots... but easier on the legs then going up. Easy path to follow (cairns or blue paint).

“Strenuous Climb”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

My husband and I did the climb up Cadillac. It was marketed as moderate but really was strenuous for us 40 year olds. Scenic views along the way. Make sure to bring water! Our trekking poles were helpful in several spots.
