i would have rated this trail as hard today. I think the air quality was the main culprit. it is all incline on the first half and it got so bad that I was having to stop every 30 feet or so to catch my breath the last mile. the viees were obstructed once at the top by all the smoke so I left unimpressed. then to top it off my knee started to hurt lol. bad day on the mountain

Quick and enjoyable out and back with amazing views at the summit. Not too difficult but can be tough if you are not used to altitudes.

I hiked this peak as an early morning hike with some friends of mine, and it was a challenge making it up to the peak for the sunrise, but it was so worth it! To see the mountains bathed in blankets of clouds and early morning sunlight was amazing

The views at the top are amazing. The rest of the hike was through the forest with a bunch of teaser views.

Honestly, this is a butt kicker. Since it was rated as easy I took a first timer with me. This should probably be considered a moderate trail. It does get you tired after a while since it's literally always going up. The views at the top are incredible. It is so worth it, we stayed at the top for a while! The views are just incredible. The trail didn't really take us that long to get it done but it did get us really tired

The 1st mile will definitely warm you up. Really enjoyable out and back trail. The view from the peak is well worth the effort to get there. The elevation change from the floor of the San Joaquin Valley to the 10K+ was noticeable. Expect other hikes to join you at the peak but was not crowded by any means

Awesome hike! Not super difficult, nice day hike. The summit is absolutely incredible. Started around 10:30 and after spending about an hour on the summit, got back to the car lot around 2:30.
