This is one of my favorite hikes, and it isn't too hard. One warning though - the wind is very strong on the ridge.

Nice hike with great views of the valley. A variety of hikes available from this location ranging from 1 mile to 10 miles. Most hikes do not require the permit. The permit is only required if you want to hike in the watershed area.
