Need minimum of 20.

This is a hard hike due to the elevation gain. It is six miles round trip and over 2 thousand feet elevation gain. It has narrow trail part of the way with steep drops. Look at pic above. If you are afraid of heights, you might not like this trail. This hike isn't for beginners.

This railway used to go to a hotel. It was a railway used from the 1890s to 1930. You'll see relics left over from the old railway. Once we get to the top, you'll see where the old hotel was. It has awesome views.

Bring water, shoes with good traction, etc.

Rain postpones hike.
