For anyone who has not done this hike yet, it is located at the North end of the gas station parking lot. Make sure to follow the creek up to the powelines, and watch for rock arrows to start the trail head.

This hike is rated moderate, although, I would say it's boarder line difficult. The first 15 minutes of the trail are through a tree line, and once you break it is a steep climb to the top. it was very windy when we hiked, and most of the hike is exposed with little to no tree cover, so a jacket was needed. Most of the climb to the top is a scramble, and parts are a little sketchy, as there is a lot of loose shale, gravel, and sharp rocks. I would suggest taking your time and looking for the best routes as you often lose the trail, or a better option can found.

The summit was also not an option for us as it was far too windy, and we would have needed polls. Still a spectacular hike, as the views are incredible, and highly recommend.
