Tom's Thumb Trailhead reviews
I like the greenery and flowers at some of the other hiking spots better than this place, but the trails through the rocks can’t be beat. Wonderful hiking with great views close to the rocks. more »
Outstanding hike. Clean views. Beautiful rock formations everywhere. Nothing looks the same as you weave up and down back and forth. Pretty steep climb but nothing too hard if your in decent shape... more »
Be aware that it is STEEP! While not a "difficult" hike, you should be prepared for the incline. Gorgeous views from multiple view points throughout the hike. We did this early afternoon on a weekend and it was not crowded, we were able to bring both of our dogs without issues.
This trail was pretty hard for me. Constant climbing during the first half but then it gets a little easier toward the end. Going down is a little difficult, it's really easy to slip because it's very steep. So make sure you have shoes with good grip. The view is amazing when you get to the top. All around took me about 5 hours with several breaks.
