This was a great workout! Just as hard coming down as going up because it’s so steep and rocky.

Did it with my dog but I probably won’t again until post snake season. It’s rocky and wild up top.

First time hiking; will definitely take this trail again, and others. Hiked the trail with my family (husband, 3 year old, 2 month old, brother, niece). 3 year old made it to the top and down with minimal assistance. Rocky, but manageable, if you're careful where you step.

Despite the loose rocks I really loved the summit trail. Great great views from the saddle and the top. A little bit of scramble but not bad.

I really enjoyed hiking this trail with my 6 pound pup. Took a little over a hour to reach the top and down. It is a steep trail but, we were able to do it just fine. It is a rocky trail so, good hiking shoes is recommended. I’ll be doing this trail again. Parking is limited.

I liked the short, steep hike with great views at the summit. I'd definitely wear hiking boots. It's rocky.
