Great hike probably best in the park

This was just after we climbed up the middle trail and stopped at the overlook. Lucky to meet someone who could take our picture for us!

We took the middle trail up the hill figuring it would be better to do it on the way up.  Big mistake as we had to walk the northern part of the loop (hot desert) in the hottest part of the day.  Up on top it is quite cool and gradual.  The north side was nice but yes would be best going up the north side and coming down the center (we didn't take the south side)
