Beautiful, but certainly not for beginners. 3 steep hills on the way up and a good stretch of climbing tree roots vertically nearing the top. Takes roughly 3-5 hours based on pace. Hire a guide for the full experience, but not needed 100%. Oneil and Jr know all the plants and animals and really explain everything you're seeing. Like people mentioned it's pretty well marked, but definitely a point that can take you to a hotel instead of where you parked so you could get lost if first time potentially. Bring plenty of water!!! You're going to sweat. One of the most rewarding hikes I've done. Absolutely stunning views from the top. Highly recommend it
