The short hike here is one of the more popular ones in the park and the crowds of people attest to that.  Since we had hiked Taft Point and Sentinel Dome nearby we decided to knock this one off since we were in the area.

The paved path is very easy to traverse, even with our tired legs.  There was a large number of people at the edge of the viewing spot where the best views reside, but since it was not summer it was not jam packed, so we were thankful for that.
