My husband and I went on this hike on a Sunday around 10:30am. It was pretty packed; I'd definitely suggest going earlier, as parts of the trail are very narrow and you'll have to wait for people to pass. I believe the hike itself is...More

It is a nice place to see, very special. Go to the trailhead side so that you can enjoy the Vortex as well.

Very crowded, get there early for a parking place. It was a fun hike, a good bit of rock scrambling so be prepared. The views were great.

Best seen in the morning. Try to get close for the details and great colours that change as the sun rises.
