- There are mutliple paths going to the top and bottom, so this can be done as a loop. Once you get to the top, it’s easy to keep walking straight along the ridge line as far as you’d like.
- The hike is a great place for berry picking especially late in the summer.
- The parking lot can get quite full on busy days.
