| This 2.6 mile out and back hike is short but moderate. Trailhead elevation is about 680 feet. The trail climbs to about 1100 feet in 0.5 mile, then continues to a high point of about 1400 feet in another 0.8 mile. Some sections, mostly sets of steps, are very steep, and both trails and stairs can be slippery when wet. A trekking pole is a good accessory any time of the year, particularly if you've got troublesome hips or knees.
