bit of a slog for a fat guy but well worth the effort :)

the view on top is beautiful. However, It took considerable amount of effort to get on top due to the loose rock ways, narrow path and the guess work involved at places. My 6 years old was able to get up and down by himself. I would not recommend it to people with knee injuries.

It's really steep to get to the top. You have to be careful on the way back. Not recommended for children or people who is not used to hard hiking. Be prepared to climb. Enjoy the beautiful view from the top of the mountain.

Short hike but definitely steep and a good workout going up. Took about 1.5 hours total round trip with a stop for lunch at the top. Would recommend poles given the incline.

Took us 1 hour 15 minutes to the top but stopped for photos and my dog wanted to sniff everything. Could easily go up in 45 min.
The top is nice to take a break, photos (great views!), and lunch.
Going down took no time at all.

Would recommend this hike for all levels. It's a quick hike but views are nice.

Steep switchbacks eventually lead to a rocky ridge. Once at the ridge either a short scramble or quick climb to the top. Great views of the surrounding valley and Prairie Mountain.
