I started with the 4.5 mi hike to Hoyt Mountain to the water tank. Decided I didn’t have enough time to complete the entire hike with the sun setting in an hour or so. Turned around and did this 1 mi hike. Complete mistake. The trail is not much of a trail. It’s going straight uphill with a whole lot of loose gravel. Very sketchy. The view was great but the terrain going uphill/downhill isn’t.

This is hardly a trail and the rating should be difficult. I took this route with my bf thinking it would be a quick and moderate shortcut to the summit, but I regret the decision and wish we took the four mile route instead. The first segment leading to the peak is extremely steep and the trail is not clear. At times, we were on all fours climbing up the mountain and the rocks beneath our feet were unstable and rolling. There was no clear trail at the top of the summit either and the last uphill is also very steep. No shade.
