Pretty hard hike. Make sure you check out the west peak view. It's amazing compared to the summit view.
Challenging loop trail that encompasses most of the mountain as it winds its way around the dome. Very scenic but prepare for a long day on what is in my opinion, the steepest three thousand footer in the area. very reasonable lookout tower at the summit offers exceptional 360 views.
