Take this hike for the views, not for the solitude as you won't be alone! Another sunny weekend day to enjoy a hike. With the nice weather we figured it was a good opportunity to do this hike --- if we're going to climb over 2,000 feet we want to see some rewards for our effort. We weren't disappointed. On the way up we took a 1 mile roundtrip detour to a nice lookout point. We were told hang gliders take off from here but we didn't see any. The views across the sound were still great, though. Onward and upward we climbed to the top of Oyster Dome for even more expansive views. Even though the trail was packed, it was still an enjoyable hike. Another group at the top had brought champagne and made mimosas to celebrate their climb -- not a bad idea!
