Didn't know how steep it was really going to be until I started but I am so glad that I finished!

I got to the trail at about 0515 to try and beat the heat and catch the sunrise at the top. It took me about 45 minutes up, so I missed the sunrise by a few...but still worth it! At the top there's a nice panoramic view of the surrounding valley and mountains. There also another good stop about 10 minutes from the top.

The way up is all uphill, and the way down is all downhill. The way is mostly stairs...so prepare your knees! I passed a few coiled rattlesnakes, so mind your step.

Good, steady climb. It's mostly stairs with a little bit of well trodden and easily visible path. I did it mid day and it was over 100 degrees at bottom; had a nice breeze at the top so well worth it for that and the great view.

Solid short hike, completely uphill with rock steps to the top. Made it to the top in ~45 minutes for a gorgeous sunrise. Saw 10 bighorn sheep on our way down and actually had to wait them out as they were on the trail chilling.

hot but great views. not a lot of flowering plants and was very busy - most likely bc of memorial day weekend. i am short and would rather have a flat ascent rather than steps but it was otherwise nice.
