This trail can be difficult with some technical rock climbs/descents. It was very busy when I went (the weekend) with people of all ages, including many impressive older people charging it. Views of Osaka can be glimpsed throughout with an impressive panoramic view at the very summit. The trail includes several small stream crossings.

The first 1/4 mile is all rock climbing but then becomes a typical trail, so don't get discouraged as I did by.
The trail is well worn and well defined. There are a couple of forks with no English on the trail markers, so prepared.

Note: that this trail as listed doesn't go to the summit and it's only about another 1/4 mile. Make sure you do that to get the summit view!
