Great hike. Lots of varying terrain but mostly uphill. The subalpine is quite steep but you can see the top, therefore, the motivation to continue will be there. It's a very rewarding view! Although it was very cold and lightly snowing in August at the top! Took us 3hr to the tram and another 30 minutes to the summit, with multiple breaks.

The last mile (*before* the upper tram station) or so is super steep but as long as you are wearing appropriate footwear you will be fine. It is advisable to leave the trail head early in the morning so you avoid the mid-day heat. The 360 views at the top make it worth the effort!

This is the easier way to get to the top, the tram cuts most of the tough work out for you, still tough with the elevation your hiking in, but well worth it, the views are spectacular!!
