Walk was great for beginning hikers. Not much scenery. Expected to be more in front of the hoodoos rather than just on top.

As of 2017, there are new interpretive panels describing the wildlife and geology of the area. NCC also installed guard rails and directional signage for the trail due to off trail erosion and plant trampling of sensitive sites.

Fun easy hike - beautiful views - glad to see some fence barriers at the top this trip. It's rather sandy and can be slippery. Take water - stay hydrated for this short walk as you will do some moderate climbing uphill.

The trail to the top is fairly steep and makes a nice climb to view the valley. From the top one can see spectacular views of the Columbia Valley and surrounding areas.
