Fairly steep from the parking area for the first mile or so, but beautiful views to the east.

I just did the hike from the turnaround spot up to the top of Windy Peak July 23, 2017. Only suitable if very dry season. We still got wet walking through the low lying areas around the 5 mile mark on the map and then again around the 4.5 mile mark. Bush wacking up the north ridge until we cleared the trees. Don't ask me why the trail is marked as such, totally unsuitable. Looking to the east you can see the triail from "The Hump" and it looks well marked and used.
If I could edit the track shown I would.
