Very good hike, make sure being few bottles of water with you and when u get to the top, make sure go further to the second rock. It's a must! So worth it! View is just unreal!!! Will take 2 and half hrs total with 15-20 min break at the top! I recommend to bring a sandwich and few snacks! Enjoy!
This was a relatively easy distance with a consistent incline throughout. We hiked off to the left of the picnic tables to scale the nose and get a better vantage point. The views from there were amazing, but I would advise others to exercise caution, as there is clearly a sign telling people not to hike beyond the path on the way to the nose (and I'm sure that the sign was put there for a reason). Watch out for protruding tree roots, as they are plentiful, and be mindful of recent rainfall. We hiked on a very dry day, but mud would have made things more challenging.

I hike this at least once a week if I can, it's the best exercise!
Nice view at the top. Can be quite challenging at steep grounds. I recommend to follow track and try to avoid the "shortcuts" cause it might lead to nowhere. Good hike otherwise. Thanks to the tree roots for traction to prevent us from sliding down.
Vista views along the way...about 4 miles total round trip if you go from the trailhead on the app. Once you get to the picnic tables on top, you can keep going to the left to the "nose", which is narrow in places and very high!!! The sign says that the trail ends. Worth the view. Definitely more of a summit-type hike. The first 1.5 miles are switch backs with a moderate incline and the major reward (for me anyway) was at the tip top.
