Challenging hike. Terrace Trail is quite flat and relaxing, then you stay above the right side of the creekbed all the way up, which is nice, but narrow path with lots of foliage as foot traffic is low. Didn't see anybody else on the trail all day, so since it is quiet would recommend bear spray. Once you are above the treeline, "trail" is difficult to follow, we effectively made our own following the natural scree slides. Pick your spots and be careful not to kick rocks at your hiking buddies. We took about 9.5 hours round trip with some well deserved breaks and time spent at the top. View of the golf course is spectacular and that much more special if you've played the course before. Downloading is difficult, lots of crab walking, be prepared to get your hands and butt dirty.

I would not say this is a moderate scramble. The walk in is super chill for the first 2.5K, then the next 2.5K up has a 5000 ft elevation gain and most of it is a scramble. Be prepared to work your ass off. Lots of websites recommend gear and I don’t entirely disagree. We didn’t have any but we had some near misses with flying rocks.

Great scenery! Good moderate scramble. Still snow in the gully so recommend an ice axe for stability.
