Up and back, good trail with lots of flagging. Short hike with great reward in terms of views.

Following the cut line from the Gorge Creek parking area, this is a straight, uphill slog through a perfectly plain pine wood. Not much to look at until the top.

In the final climb it was very difficult to pick out trails of any kind, perhaps due to snow obscuring them. As a result gaining the escarpment was challenging and not somewhere to bring a first timer who is scared of heights, especially with any wind to speak of.

Once on top you get a great view of the carpeted foothills and the front ranges behind them. Not your top priority, but worth doing at some point if you have a few hours and have exhausted the more exciting stuff.
