Nice hike with some good places to stop before the summit. Gus' Lookout was really nice. The only way to see the view from the top is if you go up the lookout tower. Not a good hike for novices or first timers.

Love this trail. It's a comfortable ascent with outstanding views from the tower. I prefer taking Slab up to the summit, and then taking the Brownsville trail down, stopping to see the vistas from Brownsville Rock and Castle Rock before cutting onto Slot.

I found this moderate trail to be challenging. Loved it regardless. Mostly steep sections, lots of rocks and roots. Some of the trail is flattish with nice gravel. I hiked on a pretty warm afternoon (mid-80), clear day, and was mostly in shade. Will try trail again when I have more miles on my feet, but compared to other moderate trails in the area, I feel this one will still be a challenge.

I can't recommend this hike in the warm months. The first third of the hike is completely overgrown. The weeds are literally up to your armpits. If you do decide to take the hike, wear long pants and a long sleeve shirt.
