Short and steep. I measured 8.32 miles.

The elevation gain is no joke...those switch backs and steep faces toward the top are what makes this trail "hard." Be sure your boots/shoes are as tight as possible...I wear tactical boots and my feet were a little torn up from the incline.

With that said, this is an extremely beautiful hike, saturated with wildlife -- most of it is like walking through a forest. Trail is immaculately clean and maintained, views are insane, and people are friendly. What's more? There are a ton of other trails to hook up with at the top, which can easily extend your hike another several miles/hours.

Not recommended for a hot day. It was around 90 degree today, and it was challenging. First third of hike was pretty stiff, 2nd third was pretty easy, and last third has most altitude gain. There was no view due to haze.
