  • We did not book with the company- you really do not need to: you must use the trail’s guide to hike. So all you need is to get to the trail head. Entrance fee is 50$. It will take you around 15 to 20 ...  more »

  • My girlfriend and I hiked this in Feb 2019 on a day stop during a cruise. This is a beautiful trail. The hike is steep, and if you are not in top notch shape, expect to be tired the entire time. But y...  more »

  • Read a few reviews that said this hike was “easy”, but can assure you it is strenuous, but worthwhile! After ascending~2,000ft at about a 45 degree angle (think Stair-stepper for 2 hours), the views you’re rewarded with at the top are well worth the trek. Our guide Cameron was quiet but encouraging/funny. Make sure to pack extra water and some snacks.
  • Very difficult hiking trail not for beginners. I am a beginner and didn’t make it 1/2 way. First bit of the trail was good. We then got to a wall of big rocks that we would have had to climb and that was just the easy part. I am 5’1 and in good shape. Please listen to your body and mind. I am very happy with the nice view I saw at the first resting point. PLEASE DONT LISTEN when people say this is an easy hike for beginners because it truly is not. Giving it 4 starts because the view I did see was nice and I was very content with that.
  • Depending on what you call a hike, this may be that or a climb. In any case, you are walking a trail pretty much straight up. All the way to the top. Very few flat sections, and they're super short when they occur. It was slippery when we did it, as it rained here and there every day, but not to a point to make it dangerous. Essentially, you can do this in 1:30 or maybe less if you just walk it non stop, but that's unlikely for most people. You'll need to stop to catch your breath so expect about two hours. There are many sections where you'll be climbing on rocks without any human-made bits to help you, while other segments have rudimentary railings. I've heard people in other groups complain that the way down is just has hard. I didn't feel that way, but I can see someone with knee issues not finding it particularly funny. Maybe a walking stick? In any case, this is doable for anyone, it will just be a matter of time that you want to spend doing it. The views are nice, there's tons of interesting vegetation, and our guide (which is required, even if technically not necessary) was a great fellow. Thanks Quincy!
  • amazing beauty. there is a naturally heated waterfall on the trail.
  • Our guide was knowledgeable about the area and helped us get to the top. Not an easy climb but ok for people without mobility issues
