View is decent, you can't see too too far from the top.
Very lightly trafficed and very well maintained.
2.25 miles of uphill hiking with occasional flat part....perfect start not so grueling for some. There are benches BUT, view is obstructed. Weather is great if you like the warm overcast with occasional sun peeking. last 2 miles is a cool down. A good time to take in the beautiful sights...enjoyable escape.
We did this hike today! It was definitely moderate - difficult as it was a lot of vertical. The views were great despite the fog & it wasn't busy. Restrooms available at the trailhead & maps.
Great Trail. Very peaceful, serene and secluded when I was there (Sunday afternoon). Nice views too.
