Nice hike, somewhere between moderate and hard for a novice 32 year old hiker. Well maintained trail, easily viewable markers, and amazing view at the summit. Felt longer than 3.1 miles and quite windy at the top when exposed to the elements. Would definitely hike again.

Nice little hike. Only a few tough spots. Would be a nice family hike because it's short and not too difficult. Views at the summit were amazing.

It said moderate, but for someone out of shape, it was a bit difficult with LOTS of climbing up rocks, stones, roots, boulders, etc. I made it to the top and consider that quite an accomplishment for this newly retired person. Of course, it was encased in a cloud, but still, I'm glad I went. Sometimes the trail disappeared near the top...

A moderate hike in difficulty and distance for those used to hiking on rocks. Great reward at the Peak with 360 degree views and a wonderful seat for a picnic lunch or quick snack. Bring your camera!

Great hike with beautiful views and excellent foliage colors. The shared pictures give some insight into the view. If you want a shorter and less strenuous hike; park at the higher parking lot. It will cut out about 0.45 miles (based on signage).
There were a few friendly local dogs at the top and a handful of couple. Highly recommended two!

Great challenging trail . except when it forks . we missed the sign for the summit and ended up going up the super dangerous Rocky skyline trail . but the view is amazing !

You're in the trees for most of it but the view from the summit is worth it!
