Definitely an intense uphill if you’re a bit out of shape (like me), or if the weather is 80s or above - so it’s a nice workout replacement for the day. Bring water and take breaks. Opens up into a lovely meadow but shade is hard to come by anywhere on the trail. Only saw two other hikers and a biker on a Sunday afternoon.

Final 1/3 kinda steep — bring grippy shoes! Otherwise short and sweet hike, +/-3 hrs

Steep, slippery, mostly shadeless trail on decomposing granite -- but what a view! Be sure to wear grippy shoes, not the old sneakers in the trunk of your car, like I did.

We hiked this trail in the rain and experienced a tremendous amount of fun, hard work and relaxation all at the same time! The clouds prevented us from seeing most of the views, but helped us feel like we were entirely out in the wilderness without a road, car or city in view. The hike, whether hiked rain or shine increases in elevation along the trail with the greatest inclines starting about halfway through the hike. It is a workout, but certainly worth it. I recommend this hike during mild rain or during our climate’s typical sunny weather, but caution everyone to wear good shoes as the trail is slippery in places.

The first part of the hike is really moderate level but wait until the second part of the hike. The second half of it is straight up incline. But it is short hike so not too bad. But I do recommend good hiking shoes or a tracker at least if you do not want to slip.

This hike is super steep and is 3.4 miles RT with some strenuous elevation gains. You can continue straight on the paved road to cut some distance, or go right at the trailhead go follow the AT Loop.
Great views.

I hiked with a buddy. Short hike, but it was a workout due to how steep it was. The views were awesome though once you get to the top. I would recommend for views and a workout.

Appeared that trails were washed out and there wasn't much of a hike here.
