Awesome hike with a beautiful view of my home town!

My first hike made it to the top. Loved it. Cold windy at top :)

gorgeous views on the top. The rating is difficult and this holds true. It's constant steep unhill so no flat breaks whatsoever. But very worth it. Recommend hiking shoes for sure.

Path was easy to navigate to the top, where you are met with breathtaking views.

Compared to EEOR, I found this hike to be quite easy. It's quite steep on the way up and we saw a lot of people with hiking poles, but it wasn't absolutely necessary to have them. There was no scrambling involved and for the most part, the path was quite easy. (Probably because it's so heavily trafficked). We went in the morning on a Wednesday and it wasn't busy at all. Just a few people here and there. It's a fun workout for a rewarding view. We kinda jogged some of the way down, so it only took us max 45 minutes to get to the bottom. Was a super fun hike and there were people of all ages on the trail!

Trail still closed from bear activity. Aug 16

Trail remains closed due to bear activity August 14th.

Good hiking boots and poles are a must for this hike.

Short hike - less than 2 hours to the top (and I'm a 51 yr old moderately active female ☺) but it's relentlessly uphill the whole way with few switchbacks -- the ones you get are very short. Be prepared for a grueling workout both up and down. Took 1.5 hrs to get down as well. Make sure your shoes have good grip! Highly recommend 2 walking sticks as well.
