    I did this hike for the first time today. I hiked to the summit via the shorter and steeper route, and came back the longer and less steep way. Overall it was a good hike, and as others have said, it is strenuous and your legs will feel it. My Garmin GPS put the mileage at just over 8 miles and this took me about 4 1/2 hours to complete. All the good views are up the steep side to the summit, and then heading down the other side you get a great view from "the saddle." After that you're on a road/horse trail which is pretty rocky. If I do this again I will just do the hike to the summit as an out and back.

    I really enjoyed this hike. I arrived at 8 AM and found the very limited parking full so I parked about 1/4 mile away on Thurman. This hike was on the easy side of moderate for me. There were a lot of people running the trails and plenty of off-leash dogs.
