Despite the crowds this mountain can still be a lot of fun, offering as it does a short but taxing climb and many great views along the short route.

Did this hike in mid-February. A fairly challenging but do-able hike (my husband and I are in fairly decent shape but we're not super hikers either). I was surprised at how crowded the trail was, even mid-morning on a Wednesday. The view was worth the effort!

My short hobbit-like legs made for a steady pace to the top and a slow trip back down. Such incredible views!

Great workout! Wear sunscreen.
