I haven't done a lot of hiking so after reading the other reviews, I decided not to try this one. If was only after talking to a father and his 9 year old daughter on top of Mount Peel who had been up here the week before that I changed my mind. I can see why people wouldn't like this 'hike'. There is a lot of climbing over rocks and going on all fours to go up and go down. There is one section towards the top that makes you feel like you're actually climbing. In this regard it is the toughest hike that I've ever done. There are no safety railings, or signposts or amenities. This is clearly indicated by a sign at the bottom. However, it's not too long from bottom to top. I did it in 40 minutes without pushing myself too hard. So overall I found it to have just the right amount of difficulty but it might not be for everyone. See the pictures for an idea of the type of terrain to expect.
A nice short but steep and rocky climb up a geologically interesting table top plateau just out of town. Much of the climb is very exposed so take sun screen. The trail is also very rocky at places so sturdy shoes and loose clothing will make it much safer. If you've only got an hour or so it's well worth the effort.
