Tuff climb to top we went up the old trail to summit a bit harder but views were worth it. Weather was perfect and had lunch at top. An amazing hike so close to home lived here for 15 years and first time up. Not going to wait that long again before return.

It was super pretty but was not a very long hike, it took us like one hour to get to the top.

If you hike the trail just around the lake it is good but hiking to the very top i have to say is an amazing trip well worth the view and just a great spot to be out in nature so close to the city. You can also take a tent and gear with you and about halfway up the mountain if you are up for it can stay a night or two although the mountain is hikeable in the day
