This hike was amazing. It is challenging, but I think a moderate rating would be more accurate than hard. The view was gorgeous when I went in the fall. The caves were my favorite part of the hike, so don't forget a flashlight!

It was beautiful but my group almost got struck by lightning and died. It took about 2 hours to hike up. The camping on top was perfect. It took about 45 minutes to slide down the mountain in the pouring rain. Scared me for life. Would hike again XD

Was a challenging but very rewarding hike with gear, found eagle cave and enjoyed the amazing view from both sides of the gully, and summed it up with a beautiful night under a crystal clear sky
