With 800+ feet of elevation gain in just 3.5 miles, this is an asskicker. The views are worth it though. Be sure to bring plenty of water and food, shoes with good tread (the trail is very loose in some parts), and a GPS (the beginning/end of the trail is hard to follow).

Great hike! Significant elevation gain but views are totally worth it!

Crazy awesome hike,
The trail head is a sign on the side of the road with enough room for 3 cars to pull off onto the shoulder. The start of the trail is not very well marked so you the AllTrails app to help you find your way. Our group of 4 did this hike in December and no one was to be seen at all on the trail. You can see the summit from where you park on the road which is really cool. There isn't anything technical about this trail, just be careful of the steep incline and loose rock near the top.

Great hike! Extreme temperature change when completing this trail. Was raining and foggy so limiting distance views but was a lot of fun! Challenging!
