Steep, rocky trail, always crowded in the summer when the tourist road to the top is open.

Rocky and very well traveled. You can hear road noise the whole hike. All up hill steep, view nice, but other hikes are better.

This is a fun hike with a rewarding view at the top. Definitely on the more difficult side of moderate, as it is a steep incline the whole way up. As another poster mentioned, the way down can be challenging, as there are many flat rocks that can be slippery. Round trip, the hike took me a little under two hours.

As as hiker and someone who loves the outdoors its a great hike and beautiful view at the top.
Fair warning there are alot of rocks and its steep at times. If u have bad knees I wouldn't advise it. Stay on the trail or u will get lost. They could improve on the trail markers though but overall it is a great hike. I'd give it a 7.5/10 and definitely moderate not easy.

Moderate for sure. All up hill for 1.5 hours. The view is definitely worth it.

Loved it the view is worth it

This was straight uphill and straight downhill. I felt it was on the more strenuous scale. Wear shoes that grip and have some ankle go down on sheets of rock.

all went well until after the halfway point where the blue trail intersection the red trail and is not very visible

Very tough hike. Steep most of the way up, and very rocky, but the view at the top is fantastic!

It's not a bad hike if it's your first time just make sure you have good hiking boots/sneakers. There are are several steep inclines...and don't forget water!

If you have asthma either skip this hike or set a lot of time so that you can make frequent stops.

great trail with great views. only thing was too many tourists at the top so it was hard to enjoy the view. if you don't mind a lot of people enjoying the same view as you then this would be great for you.

Tough climb up. Was not prepared for the incline! Awesome views at top. Worth the climb. Kids got a bit whiney about a mile in.

Overall a nice, challenging hike. Definitely not for beginners or anyone looking for something casual. We made it up the mountain in about an hour, and then back in half that time. The view is wonderful and worth the hike up, but it's kind of disappointing that while you just hiked an hour, others drove up to the top and got the same view. Some tips if you're looking to go: bring LOTS of water especially if it's a hot day, wear good shoes with good traction as you'll be hiking up/down a lot of flat sheet rock, and be careful!
