This hike was much different and interesting the entire way up to the saddle. I enjoyed the lush, dense bush and trees along the way, and even a few unexpected small bodies of water. the trail made gradual turns and minor twists through spring foliage and wildflowers, while still offering plenty of breaks along the trail to stop and take in the beautiful views all around! when you get to what feels like the saddle, keep looking ahead to the one and only tree that atop the mountain. Thats a good landmark, and just on the rock below it, is prime seating to take in Weavers needle about a mile away. the rock formations and changes in the landscape made for a very enjoyable and interesting hike, which I would definitely recommend to families with children. This hike wasn't too strenuous, and allows for plenty of great resting points for those who feel the need to take a second or two to enjoy the view before continuing onward. I am glad this hike made the list and will most likely be taking some friends back to experience this hike as well!

  1. It’s a beautiful hike. Not too tough, like you said, but great views in both directions (up to the saddle and back). I hiked just before sunset and the colors were spectacular!
