Great hike! Pleasantly surprised by all the beautiful wild flowers! A great day
Rough hike once you actually hit the mountain, but the view is worth it.
definitely not a difficult trail, more like moderate. well marked. couldn't find the last 0.6 mile which is somewhere beyond the giant boulders at the top. was very fun.
Rode mountain bikes.
Mostly on the sunny side of the mountain so bring water. The overlook at the end of the trail is beautiful. The switchbacks were a good workout. We did see a poisonous snake so keep your eyes open. The water at the parking lot is OK to drink.
