A large part of the trail (probably 1/3) is seriously overgrown, almost disappearing entirely in some areas. It's a slog getting through those parts -- and wow, do you not want to wear shorts -- but the view at the top is amazing. The climb is steady but there are occasional flat sections to give your calves a rest. We enjoyed the hike but if no trail maintenance is done, we suspect it will be quite difficult to get through in another month.
