Great Hike!
Hiked this trail today with my husband and two children -  five and eight years old, and it was perfect for us all.  The hike description above is very accurate and the views are amazing.  The handicapped accessible beginning of the trail is a nice leisurely start and maintains energy for later.  The stone steps and boulders made this trail just challenging enough for my children to keep them excited but not too wearing.  Loved all the viewpoints and amazing panoramic vistas.  Make sure to bring a good camera!
