The views at the top are amazing. The rest of the hike was through the forest with a bunch of teaser views.
Honestly, this is a butt kicker. Since it was rated as easy I took a first timer with me. This should probably be considered a moderate trail. It does get you tired after a while since it's literally always going up. The views at the top are incredible. It is so worth it, we stayed at the top for a while! The views are just incredible. The trail didn't really take us that long to get it done but it did get us really tired
The 1st mile will definitely warm you up. Really enjoyable out and back trail. The view from the peak is well worth the effort to get there. The elevation change from the floor of the San Joaquin Valley to the 10K+ was noticeable. Expect other hikes to join you at the peak but was not crowded by any means
Awesome hike! Not super difficult, nice day hike. The summit is absolutely incredible. Started around 10:30 and after spending about an hour on the summit, got back to the car lot around 2:30.
