Ascent Trip Report

Got to enjoy this hike again with my 77 year old mother, my sisters, and my 12 year old niece. What a treat! We got up early on what was shaping up to be a very hot day (the previous day had been 107). The early morning hike was just what we needed. We went slow, and had an enjoyable time. About 1/2 way up (around .33 miles from the parking area) there is petrified wood in the rocks - so don't miss that fun part of the trail. Look for dark chunks of rock embedded in the lighter sandstone. Upon closer inspection you will notice that the darker sections of rock are pieces of petrified wood.

Glad to be able to hike this little peak again!

Kid friendly? Yes - though it can be a bit steep in parts, it is a great hike
Dog friendly? Yes - on leash
Arthritis Ibuprofen Scale (one to five) - I'd give this one a 1.5 to 2. If going slowly, it could be a 1. There are just a few steep parts that bump the rating up a little.
Bottom line - would I do it again? Absolutely - on a day that is not too hot, though. It would not be a fun afternoon/summer heat kind of hike.
