The hike is moderate, the most difficult part being the last 100' to the summit. The trails are beautiful and the view is spectacular. It's a great trail running trail and has 3 different trailheads to choose from, some easier than others. Worth it, especially on cloudy or foggy days as well as sunrise and sunset.
I LOVED this hike. I am not in excellent shape, so it was a hard one. Had to take several breaks on the way up. It is pretty much all incline, I don't remember many flat areas. It was also very heavily trafficked. I took our small dog and he did just fine. The view at the top is what deserves 5 stars! Even with going on a foggy day it was beautiful, so I can't wait to go back on a nice day.
