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.

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!

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.
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!
