That flat sliver of a rock is Potato Chip Rock. 6 mile roundtrip for that. I thought I might understand after seeing firsthand but not so much.
The views are pretty cool. Mountains, oceans, lakes. Not bad.
The incline is killer on the flexors. One of the most challenging climbs we've done.
Lots of little paths to climb off the main trail. Always a big hit with the kids.
The beginning of the hike when everyone is still smiling.
The higher you get the bigger the rocks.
Which is fine by this kid!
There are a couple well hidden secrets. First, nobody tells you about the multiple cell phone towers at the top. It's not very serene...at all. The towers kind of ruined it for us. And the line of 50 people waiting to take their picture on the rock sliver. And that the trail is really just a utility road for the cell tower people. Not really a nature hike by any means :(
